In 2003 had L4-5 fusion do to DDD. About 9 months ago I started to have pain in lower back left side and thighs. Right foot has sharp pain once in a while. Went to the nerosurgeon last week I have done mylogram, discogram and injections. Mylogram shows arthritis of facets advanced mid to lower spine. Discogram very painful 1-2 l2-3 they say tears. Doctor recommended, as he put it, need to do lumbar salvage surgery......L1-2 L2-3 fusion, put peek disc spacers at L3-4, L5-S1 and take previous hardware out at L4-5 and replace from L1-S1 or I could put in morphine pump or pain stimulator. New to web site and would love to hear your recommendations. Pain is getting worse.
