Hi - My husband has severe back pain. He had a fusion surgery years ago. It was with BAK cages. Right after the surgery, his disabling pain was gone but it came back after a couple of months. He has been in pain management since.
He wants to see if he can get any help now - if there is anything that can be done to help him. -To help him get his life back. This is a huge thing because the surgery was an absolute nightmare - this is putting it lightly. I am still traumatized by it and it wasn't even on me.
Anything to help him would be a surgery because he has tried injections and so on. We went to a spine surgeon who looked at his x-rays and and mri and said everything was fine and that everything looked good. - That he wouldn't know what he could do.
I suppose that is it so disappointing because it didn't seem like the dr. wanted to help. Or that there isn't anything to help and he will have to live the rest of his life like this.
We are going to see other drs. but I am afraid they will all say the same thing.
How can he be in so much pain if everything is ok?
I looked at the images and somethings are a question to me - I am not a dr. though.
