It has been a long time since I posted. I had my 5th spinal surgery on 2/22/11. I had a lot of complications and it has taken me quite a while to get back into doing things. I still have pain through out my spine (I have had surgery on C2 through C7, L1 through L5 and S1 and S2). I have a constant burning, aching feeling in the lower half of my rear end. It really hurts to sit still; I also have pain in my tailbone. Does anyone else have this type of pain? My heating pad helps it some, but as soon as it is off for a little while, the pain is just as intense. I keep hoping someday something will work. This is different than my tailbone pain. It spreads all the way across my bottom.
