I had a lumbar fusion done back in 2006 & feel it just made matters worse. Sitting is the worst, but I seem to have pain whether standing,sitting or laying. I rely on Vicodin when I just can't stand the pain anymore, but don't like to take more than 1 a day and usually not a couple of days in a row. Life for me is pretty much plain miserable dealing with constant pain. I was wondering if anyone out there has been down a similar road and has found anything that has helped. I have tried the gamut as far as the pain clinic etc & all that goes along with that. Just hoping to find some relief. Depending on the Lord for my strength. He is all that has been getting me through each & every day. Also, I might add that I have degenerative disc disease along with fibromyalgia & osteo arthritis. I am also probably looking at 2 cervical fusions the end of Sept or beginning of Oct. but do not know whether to go through with them due to how my lumbar fusion turned out. I would appreciate any advice from those of you have been down this road before. Thanks in advance.
