Good morning. I had an anterior spinal fusion L-5/S-1 in April of 2004. I am in pain every day and it is wearing on me big time. I have tried many different physical therapists, chiropractors, aqua therapy, steroid injections. I am stiff and feel like I'm 80 years old, I am only 33! It hurts to sit on the floor and play with my kids, do laundry, virtually anything that consists of doing normal day to day activities. I am considering at this point trying Medical Marijuana, has anyone had pain relief from this? Or does anyone else have similar pain this long post op. I feel so restricted and realize I should be thankful that I can walk but I used to be a hardcore athlete and now I am limited big time. Any help would be appreciated.
