Hi, my name is Etienne I live in southern California. I'm new to this site and I truly hope someone can help. I was rear-ended 8 years ago and I underwent 4 back surgeries over a period of 6 years. The first was a laminectomy, the second was a fusion l4-l5 the third was to remove the plastic implants because they caused a lot of pain the 4th was another fusion l3-l4 and they added titanium rods and added a cadaver bone to help with my posture. Now, after all the surgeries I'm in major pain. My back is still in pain my legs and feet are tingling, I now have arthritis in my back and both my shoulders have arthritis and I have ringing in my right ear after the last surgery. I have gone through so much and I'm currently seeing a pain mgmt specialist. He gives me coritisone shots every two weeks and they aren't helping. I've had countless blood tests all came back negative. Knowone can fine anything wrong. I'm 48 years old and i need help. I was on percocet and the fentynol patch I got off of them due to the effects. I could go on but I think this is enough. I honestly don't know what to do. I know longer work cause I can't stand the pain and the meds I'm on are not helping.
