I'm not sure where to start I went into hospital to have an elective operation for my back, this was on my S1L4/5/6 and also a. Disc further up would have a spacer put into it. The first operation was to have a fusion and the spacer further up, this went wrong and to cut the story short I ended up having 5 back surgeries due to me being in excruciating pain in my legs and groin and when they operated it almost went directly over to the other leg. They would not listen to me I had numerous MRI's and CT Scans as well as X-rays, I also had to endure having two spinal injections that were so painful it was unreal. I had a sunroof surgeon operate on me and he was simply not listening to me telling him my body was not right. I thought he had completed all 5 operations but he never I had another doctor complete a surgery on my back and when I questioned him from my hospital bed what operation he did on me he questioned me asking me why do I want to know? He eventually said either the 2 nod or 3rd I can't remember, I was go smacked.
I spent nearly 6 weeks in hospital and have had to learn to walk it was so annoying that I came in for 1 operation and ended up having 5!
I feel so weak now I am home, and my entire body is swollen especially my face and my belly looks like a pregnant woman's. my walking is very slow and I feel very unsteady on my feet, my right leg is very unsteady and gives way. The surgeon said its going to take time. I also told him my left breast bone feels like my heart is racing and my left arm feels numb and when I open and squeeze my hand it feels strange - I mentioned this yesterday when I had the stitches out and they said just keep an eye on it! I feel very alone now I am out of hospital, I have my family at home with me for support but feel the professionals do not want to know. My left leg up to the knee is totally numb and my right leg in the for is numb, I feel no end to the pain I am in and the swelling is very annoying I just want it gone.
Can anyone give any advice?
I do apologise for the lengthily post
