Well just got back from the drs. Even though the CT said solid bone fusion on the left. There really is not any fusion at all. Orginal surgery was done Sept 9th 07.
He is not sure if this is causing my severe leg pain while walking or not. We will not know until we re-do the surgery.
It will be set for September again
I asked if the thoracic disk was causing it he said he was unsure about that also. It is possible. But cutting open the chest plate is nothing no dr likes to do.
So we will go ahead and get fused at L-4/L-5 & S-1. And go from there~~~
He was gracious enough to give me lortab 5/500. Without me even asking. He asked me.
I do not want anything stronger so that my post op pain is in control.
I also will be going on chantix to stop smoking. Even though he said most likely that was not the reason. Because my neck fused so well.
Thanks all for being such a great support!!!
Any experiences with revision surgery please let me know. Either here or through PM.
Lots of hugs
