Had L5-S1 fused almost a year, maybe just a year.
I've been experiencing pain now for the last two months. I am very frustrated and at the same time depressed. The surgery worked wonders. When I awoke in recovery, I new right away it was a success.
Now, after messing around,( I could use a better combo of words, but will hold back), for the last two months with the GP Dr, catscan because he didn't think I could do an MRI. Well the Catscan results ended up requesting an MRI with Dye Contrast. The outcome, post operative scar tissue infringing on the nerves.
Ok, who's had this? What are the options? Surgery to clean it up? PT? PM?
I'm tired of going back and forth to Dr. Although he's very helpful, and truly cares, our last meeting we discussed he is out of tricks in his bag. He's also not willing to help on the pain side anymore.
This stinks!!!! Why, oh Why can't it be fixed the first time. I now have to go stand on my feet for 9 hours. Lovely.
Any advice or input based on prior experiences would be helpful.
