I cannot begin to tell you how devastated I feel. It has been one disk after another or a foot surgery and nerve damage in the neck from all the neck surgeries. NOW I go in because of allot of pain I have been having in my Lumbar spine. Now I have already had one fusion. Well I went to see the spine specialist thinking all the pain was from the rods and pins that were left in there from the last surgery.Well I go in and we take X rays and He says well, I believe it is from the disc above the L1 that was already fused because the disc is flat. I was like what!!! No this can not be I have been through so much already, he said we may have to do another fusion. He wants to first do a disco-gram. I am like ummm those are soooo painful....
SO now I have to get the Disco-gram set up and we will go from there. I just cannot believe it.
Does anyone on here have Degenerate disc disease and is your spine collapsing like domino's. I had two Thoracic disc herniate just last year alone, and now this! Is this normal for that disease?
Thanks for listening.
