i have had 4 back surgeries and really no problem walking after the first 3. the first one was a fusion on 4-5, then removal of hardware, then laminectomy on 3, then a fusion on 3. after the last one, i cannot walk 100 feet without extreem pain in the middle of my back and pain in rt butt and leg to knee. latest mri shows no damage. i am going to have injections next month. but, i am worried that i can't walk. i can't walk around the beach, at work, etc. we went to reno and i could not even walk around the casino or to dinner. it is depressing. i went to disneyland last year and had to rent a motorized wheel chair. i don't know what the problem is or why i can't walk. it seems to be a permanent problem
I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
