I had back surgery 2 yrs ago this month. They fuse L5 to S1and cleaned out L4. Part of the fusion did not respond as the Dr wanted. I do smoke cigars I know a no no. I donot drink or smoke cigarettes. I have had a few injection last one seemed to help. I'm scheduled for another next week. I'm getting this like like electical jolt that almost drops me. Just excruciating! I have started my core therapy it's been on and off since surgery. I have been on my roadbike a couple of times 15 minute the 1st tim 1/2 the second. I have no pain doing this.
I know I'm going to need another surgery and the DR talked about going through my stomach to put a block in and leave the hardware. How sucessful is this procedure and what actually take place. I know there are no gurantees.
