good morning, all well let me say back in 2006 i had a L-4 L-5 and s-1
after i would about a year started having problems, hip pain burning pain, now some knee- pain!! was on the left side now shifting all over the place
i had 2 MRI w/w out contrast, ct scan discogram ect ect.
My question one of the Disc the doc removed, he was suppose to put bone to replace it, and never put anything to re-place i asked a couple of doc why the said they dont know
i now am seeing another surgeon, he recommends i do a Reconstructive surger take everything out do it all over again (SCAREY).go a level higher fix the disc above and put bone for the one that doesnt have anyhting wondering if that is common not to put anything there, and the rods are a lil un even, go figure
currently takeing vicoden and Soma, vicoden really does not help,, but i really dont want anything stronger. some days are ok but when its bad its bad,,,like now really concerned about the missing bone
