  • here is one that comes to mind.

  • My l4 to s1 fusion has not healed from May 2016.  I also have a loose pedicle screw.  I am also in so much pain.  I even have a Spinal Cord Stimulator in.  I am tempted to go to the hospital  ER to beg them to do something but am not sure if there is any help for me if i do? Tired of crying in pain, screaming ftom spasms and exhausted from not being able to sleep.  Im scheduled for repair surgery Dec 8th.  Anyone with ideas?
