Been a while since I was on this site..I won't get into all the details of my past...but will give some info..In the past I had a staph infection in the spine, osteomyelitis at S1-L-5 and meningitis x5...
In 2009 I had a 360 Spinal Fusion at L4-L5 with BMP..then a revision for loose hardware and failed fusion in 2010..I felt great for the first 13 months then I went down hill with tremendous back pressure in low back, tailbone,..and now I'm dealing with the same pressure but now sciatic, spasms, deep ache and numbness in feet ect..
Went to a new Dr and he is thinking the joints at S1 are being affected because of the pressure of the hardware above..I had a X-ray and it is showing narrowing at S1. Going for a MRI tonight...could I be really looking at another Fusion
Has anyone gone through this?????
