I have had a total of ten lumbar surgeries, I fractured eleven vertebra and have been in terrible pain since 2007, my last surgery was two years ago with 14 rods put in between the hip pain from bone harvest to the extreme back pain it is a challenge! Is there anyone that has had this type of surgery? I haven't fused down low L-4 L-5 an have constant movement an my legs feel so heavy it's hard to walk thy feel like I've ran a marathon! They also used BMP because my own was not working. Pain management is basically a joke, I don't feel like I'm getting the proper pain meds an feel I shouldn't be in this level of pain everyday, my surgeon wants me to have a pain stim put in but I am afraid, I would appreciate any input!!!
