I had a posterior spinal fusion on my L5-S1 in 2009 for degenerated disc disease and never felt relief. Then in 2011 I became pregnant, had severe complications during labor and my pain has become even more unbearable since. I had a CT done by my primary Dr and the report findings show that I now have minimal diffuse disc bulge at L2-L3 and L3-L4. Mild diffuse disc bulge, Facet hypertrophy, mild central and subarticular stenosis and minimal foraminal narrowing at L4-L5.
In addition, L5-S1 only partially fused and shows indication of a screw loosening.
I have basically lost all hope. Can not handle the back and nerve pain anymore.I am hoping someone can give me some advise/encouragement.
