I know some folks are lucky enought to only go through 1 surgery or even just an ESI shot and never have pain again! On the other hand there are those of us that just can't seem to ever shake the pain and problems. 5 back surgeries and 3 fusions later I am having leg pains again. Having a Myelogram tomorrow and I'm sure there will be more work to be done on my lower back. This is so depressing and I am tired of missing work and hope my employer doesn't let me go during this very slow time at work. Has anyone else had this many issues with there back after having fusion surgery? I thought after your fused you should be good at that level from then on. Back feels great, but butt and leg are terrible when standing and sitting in a vehicle driving. Wish me luck tomorrow!
