Muscle spasms and lower back pain 7 years after surgery

KoreyAusTexKKoreyAusTex Posts: 1
Hello all, thanks for taking time to read my first post. I had surgery in 01/05 at the L4-L5, L5-S1 levels for 2 herniated discs where both sciatic nerves were crushed pretty bad, it was a horrible experience but I ended up having a laminectomy, discectomy, and facetectomy on both levels with no fusion. I understand my back will never be anywhere close to normal but I still regularly get sciatic and terrible muscle spasms with stiffness and had a bout where I ended up missing 3 weeks of work last year and about 4 weeks this year as last year's episode didn't really heal or get back to a more "normal" (for me) state. I was curious if other's were having issues like this? What did you do to alleviate their pain, suggestions? I am o erweight but just cannot seem to get anything going that will actually help me lose weight but that won't end up aggrevating my back.
