I had a PLIF plus Decompression operation in December 2008 and am still suffering a great deal of pain. My Surgeon sent me for a Scan in August 2009 and I now have to undergo a series of facet joint injections in order that they can determine where the pain is coming from! In addition I have been told that my Operation may have to be extended early 2010! Has anyone incurred the same problems as I have had? I would be very glad to know.My pain level is just as severe as it was before my operation and I am now beginning to wonder if the pain will ever go away!
