Hello everyone, new here and wish I found this site a long time ago.
Some back history....
MCA back in 2002 caused my T12-l1 disc to tear. The Dr's have done 6 epidural injects, 2 discogram procedures, 2 L.A.S.E procedures and my last one was a TLIF back in Jan 2011. Since then my pain has been worse with pain shooting down my leg leg and every 2-3 weeks my leg just gives out for a split second causing me to fall. With falling I have het my head on ground/ walls causing concussions. Dr. Is waiting to see the results from the last MRI and CT scan show, did the scans last week and see the Dr. next week to hear the results.
I currently take Norco, Flexerall, Valuim, Neurontin, Mobic. Only take them when needed but that is still every day and has been increasing lately.
The question for all of you is has anyone had the T12-L1 fusion done and if so how did yours take? Anyone else have to have the surgery redone? If the Dr. wants to do the surgery again what are the chances it will take this time since it is not working right now?
Sorry so long wish everyone a fast recovery.
