I am a 49 yr old female with failed L4L5 back surgery along with now drop foot after surgery and its been a year. Now I hurt in the upper back and practically hurt all over my body. I haved twisted my good new and its in a brace and cant seem to get it back to normal. Doctor says its my mnectus ,kneecap,lots of fluid. My left shoulder is completely in a mess. He says its that of a 65 to70 yr. person and I have a bone spur on top and under arm. I was a career outdoor for 27 yrs and this has been going on since 2008 because I did everything and I mean everything to not have surgery. I have advanced DDD along with other things that happen with the spine. I never say this coming and its now killing me. I just recently got more use of my foot and praise God. Went for a second opinion and he wont even put a percentage of recovery if any. It would now be a 3-4 way surgery. Looking for help because the metal has to come out regardless.
