That's right you read it correctly. Been dealing with back pain for 7 going on 8 years now, had 2 back surgeries, spinal cord stimulator, and now they want me to have another back surgery. This is because the Fusion in the L4, L5s1 failed twice. I been on medication for 8yrs, steroids injections, specialist after specialist.
Dont know what to do or with a 4th surgery is worth it when the other three has failed. Trying to find someone who understands what you are going through and been where i have been is like trying to find a four leaf clover in a field of thorned roses.
Well that is the very short story and it sums it up just a bit.
