Hi again all,
So It's now been 8 months since my L5 S1 fusion and I am still on a lot of pain.....my legs are still agony and the sciatica has reared its ugly head again.
I had another MRI a couple of weeks ago and am waiting to see my surgeon for the results but he has already said that if it's not another disc problem then I'll just have to accept it and deal with it!
Still using arm crutches to walk any distance as without them my back feels like it's being compressed from all angles and I end up in tears!
meds I am still on are Tramacet, Gabapentin, meloxicam, ibuprofen, paracetamol and obviously still taking the Lansoprazole and Motilium for my stomach.
Would love to come off of all of them but seriously I wouldn't function at all if I did!
Anyone else still having problems this far out??
