Hello Everyone my name is Leanna I have been reading on the web and stumble upon this sight. I'm hoping I can find some answers and ask some Questions.. I just had back surgery 6 weeks ago on my lower back , I received paper work as to what was done and I just do not understand all of this Arthrodesis, posterior interbody: lumbar
Lumbar Laminectomy, Decompression, Posterior non-segmental instrumentation (eg, Harrington rod technique,pedicle fixation across one interspace, atlantoaxial transarticular screw fixation, sublaminar wiring at C1 facet screw fixation)
I'm now having terrible pain down the leg and between my ankles and my toes go numb......
I had been having trouble with pain in my Hips for 1 1/2 years and getting injections and medications that made the pain worse or didn't help at all when my family doctor finally decided to do hip xrays and they showed fine and then a lower MRI results come back and he sent me off for surgery, I was told I needed rods plates and bone graft rebuild one disc, my sciactic nerve was compressed.
