4th back surgery not again
Hi im new to this site today. from bournemouth in the united kingdom. last year i had microdisetomy on L4 L5 and L5 S1. I prolased again 3 weeks post opp it was awfull. march 2010 had 2nd surgery microdisetomy again and because my spine was also unstable i had a wallis ligament fitted as i could not have a fusion because i have severe osteoporosis. never recovered from my 2nd opp so much pain had a urgent scan in july 2010 and was told i had a massive disc rupture behind my wallis. 26th july 2010 they took me into surgery and redid the opp all over again. was doing really well untill 8 weeks post opp and found i was in terrible pain. had to wait till begining dec for another mri scan. got told on christmas eve that i have a dural tear. that means i am leaking spinal fluid. guess what ...it has to be repaired and to do that they have to open me up again and take my implant out to be able to get to it. so frighten, every time they do something it causes another problem. said i did nt want more surgery but i have no choice as you cant have spinal fluid leaking. im going in in the next 2-4 weeks and thats quick for the nhs. in hind sight i wish i never let them do any surgery. i am so disabled now least before i had pain yes but i could still work. now i cant even walk round a shop. this is my 4th lot of surgery in a year i am so depressed i just dont know what to do. tina
