  • then you can go a lot higher regarding pain killers so if you have a decent pain clinic and an understanding doctor there's plenty of scope to help your pain .i have to say the next bit to cover myself ..never increase your medication without professional approval
  • Hi there,

    Be sure to speak with your doctor regarding potential complications with the 360 ALIF for men. I had an L4-S1 360 ALIF in January 2007. There wasn't any documented proof at that point of the procedure causing "male" problems. After having the procedure, I developed "male" problems. There is literature now that says up to 20% of men have the problem with this type of procedure. You may want to ask your surgeon about it!

    Several Epidurals, L4-S1 360 ALIF, Numerous Facet Joint Injections, RFA x2
  • I have gone from 5\500 2-3\day to 10\325 5xday. (hydrcodone)
    But now that doesn't seem to take care of my pain like it use to though.
    Good Luck to you.
