I've been lurking for a few months I have some back issues and feel like I can't find the right help. Looking for ideas and or thoughts, thanks in advance.
Had years of low back pain. Was seeing a Chiro for years 3x a weeek. Did 6 rounds of steroid shots and years of physical therapy, had some luck with Chiro but nothing else. Finally Dec of 13 went to an Orthopedic Surgeon found out my L4/L5 disc was herniated and pushing on nerves to the point of caude equinea syndrome. So had a disckectomy, that failed it reherniated second disckectomy down 3 weeks later. That failed had a third discketomy a week later then that failed. Late February of 14 I was passed to a neurosurgeon and had a fusion at L4/L5. Went well I thought started having more pain so had a 5th surgery mid april. They had to revise a screw and cut out a lot of scar tissue that incased a large infection. NS said he had never seen scar tissue like this in all of his years nor the infection inside of it.
So having more issues now with bladder again, major pain, falling down daily do to weakness. Went to ER was told I have more scare tissue than last time and have a pool of fluid again, however I was just told that it is normal and discharged from hospital! The PA in the ER told me my NS doesn't know what to do so I should go to my primary doc and ask him.
So thats my story, I live in MN and I am looking for some help on what I should do next and if anyone knows of a great doctor in MN. This is all from DJD and I am currently 30 years old.
Thanks for reading and any advice
