New to the site.
I went through L4-S1 fusion in 1999. Was a paratrooper for 10 years and had one to many jumps!
Have had good times and bad, had 7 years of relative pain free living after the surgery which had now changed to bi-weekly trigger point injections, quarterly Botox injections and daily pain meds.
It's nice to find a place to vent, where folks on the other end actually understand what you are feeling when you talk about the pain.
Thanks for having me
Fusion L4-S1, T8-T9 herniation.
