It's been two months since my fusion which involved a cage, rods and screws at L4-L5 with a little shaving of the transforminal bones above, and STILL no relief from my sciatica. I current wear a velcro brace as was told to wear it all the time except for sleep. I was also told to walk. Well...I do. Still no relief. Still on Neurotin, Flexiril, Klonopin. Will I ever be better?
