I so wish I still wasn't on this spinal roller coaster. 2 months after my L4-5 fusion I blew out L3-4. Now 14 months later the EMG shows chronic nerve damage right leg worse than the left, it is difficult to find a reflex in my right leg and my quads and hamstrings are also very weak. My leg will just start shaking when I bear too much weight on it and I have fallen a few times.
I am being referred back to my surgeon to determine the need for L3-4 to be fused.
I can't imagine doing this all over again,but this time I will be a single mom going thru this.
I am trying to stay faithful but I am terrified!
