I am done. The first couple years were better. Now my back is becoming like it was pre-surgery; numb legs, spasms, numb foot, toes, excruciating spasms. MRI reveals stenosis, ddd, but there are some pinched nerves..more. Neuro wants to do a mileogram..
Pain controled w/mobic & hydrocone 7.5/celebrex. It has been a psychological nightmare. A friend and my MD has suggested possible disability. I just have not been able to "face" that fact, and that my back will never be the same. When I heard that word, it was a 'catalyst' in my sea of DENIAL. I have to face the cold hard facts; it has changed the quality of my life. Is anyone/has anyone been in this position?
