Hi All, I am freaking out right now since getting the results of my MRI. I had a two level (L4-S1) discectomy and laminectomy 3 months ago, and have not had relief.
I had a new MRI done, still have herniations, facet issues,DDD, impingement of lumbar and my coccyx(tailbone) is totally deteriorated. The surgeon recommends a fusion as well as a coccygectomy (tailbone removal) I am having a second opinion.
I know that the coccygectomy is not common. Looking to see if anyone has had that done, and their experience with it. Wow, really don't want to have 2 more surgeries but cannot live with this pain any longer. Also don't know which surgery to have first as they would need to be done separately.
I am so scared and looking for any experiences of anyone dealing with these issues.
Thanks everyone for any thoughts on this.
