I have been battling terrible back pain since 4 weeks out of my last surgery on May 11. I have had 2 MRI's, a CT Scan, blood tests and X-Rays. Today I went into talk to my Dr about my fusion only 2 days away and he tells me he wants another MRI to rule out discitis. He called me tonight at 8pm to let me know that I need to get a biopsy ASAP and I am being referred to a Infectious Disease Doctor. I have read a little bit about discitis and am looking for more answers. Does everyone with this end up in the hospital? How long is the recovery time? Will I ever walk normal again? I am only 31 years old, I have two beautiful young kids..what kind of Dad will this allow me to be?
