I had the Trufuse procedure back in Sept on my facet joints and ever since the surgery my pain level has been so much worse. I even have pain in new areas like my upper back and the back of my head...I don't know if it's connected but I think it is as it started as soon as I woke up from surgery. Every little movement I make, my lower back crunches which sends intense pain shooting out in all directions. It's difficult just to shower and do basic housework. I have to rest after just a couple minutes of doing anything b/c the pain gets so intense that I get dizzy and nauseous.
I just moved to a new area and have a new pain doctor and she seems like she's actually going to be helpful. She's ordered a bunch of tests and stuff...she had never even heard of Trufuse though. Has anyone else had this surgery? Any info/personal experiences...anything would be great. There doesn't seem to be much info on google about it. I seriously think it needs to be taken off the market...I shouldn't have done it.
I'm having an MRI tomorrow and I also start PT tomorrow. Really hopeful that PT will help.
