Hi, first of all thanks for being part of the group.
My name is Patricio, I'm 41. 1 ½ year ago I had a surgery to fuse L5-S1 using The tecnhique TLIF in Miami, Florida.
Before The surgery, I was in pain For 2 years, The doctors in My country didn't find The cause of My pain.
After The surgery everything was going fine but suddenly I started to feel pain in My "wait". I went to Miami (I'm not live in USA) and The doctor told me The pain is caused because The screw (for fuse The spine) has moved. Nobody know why.
The pain is severe. i can't Take seat more than 20 minutes without a painkiller. Stay stand up is more confortable but The pain still "burning" My waist.
In fea words, in June they are going to remove The screws. They can't do before 2 years after The first surgery. 2 years is The minimun time requiered for a Good bone fusion. I will continue taking 4 to 5 Tramadol (50 mg) daily And 15 mg of meloxicam. Tramadol is The unique painkiller who works in My case.
Does any body knows everything to reduce The risks oN My liver and kidneys because The long term of Med consumption?
I Should wait 5 months until The surgery, does any body knows if keep 5 to 6 pills ARE gonna be very risky?
So Sorry for My english.
Thanks a lot
