I have had 2 back fusions the first in July of 09. It didnt take so in August 2010 I had my second fusion with rods and screws. After a year I am in more pain than I have ever been in. The meds don't work except to make me sleepy. The doctor insists everything is fine until my recent visit to my pain management dr. She told me my rods were moving. Well my surgeon seems to think there is nothing wrong, and because I am a workers comp case I can't get any answers. I know they are going to suggest surgery again but I dont want to get worse than I already am. I havent been able to work in three years because of my injury. I had injury to L4-L5 in 2008 had all the nerve blocks went through all the procedures and still no relief. I recently had an mri and still havent got the results from the dr. But I have the radiologists report it saysThere is enhancing scar tissue with left lateral recess perineural fibrosis. Could this be the cause of all my pain. I have severe pain and numbness in my lower extremities since the last surgery. Can anyone give me some answers.
