Hi All, I am new to this form but not to pain. I have been on about every pain med u can take and at this time I am stable on 3 80 Oxycotin per day. I have had one spinal surgery for a ruptured disc L-4-5, I have spondy grade 2, spurs, dengerative dics,stenous, arthritis, etc. One of my Dr.'s has now suggested spinal fusion, 2 do not think its a good idea. I have come here many times to read for help and it has been great to read all your post. Just wanted to say hello to all.


  • to the forum. Sorry that you are having pain and issues with your back. There is lots of information and support here. I too have been told I need a fusion, and waiting to see if I may be a candidate for ADR.
