Any 3 level lumbar fusions out there?
I have had 3 spine surgeries. A lamenectomy in 2001 at L4-L5 and L5 -S1. This was good unitl 2011. I had a "radical" the doctors words not mine, foraminotomy form L4 to S 1 in September 2011. Relived leg pain for about 9 months but pain returned. I had a fusion of L5 to S 1 in September 2012 good agian for about 9 months, but leg pain ( and back pain) are back again.
They are now recommending a fusion of L3 to L4 and L4 to L5. (2 additional levels.) Has anyone had a 3 level spine fusinon and are you happy with it?
Getting pretty discouraged!
