Hi, everyone. In the last 3 years I had 4 Spinal Fusion Surgeries. In the last 3 months I had Cervical Spinal Fusion on C4-C7. Let me start with my Cervical Spinal Fusion that took place 3 months ago. This surgery was not bad to recovered. However, I am afraid of the consequences of the surgery. So, far, I believe that the surgery was good for me. However, I am having problems with how the rods and plates are feeling.
If anyone can help with options about these questions I have:
1- So, far, I am deeling with my last surgery from my neck that took place 3 months ago. I'm hoping that everything with this surgery goes well. But if anyone read this and they feel a connection with my situation, please share your thoughts with me?
2- My last fusion Surgery from my Lumbar was done 1 year ago. However, 2 weeks ago I was send to Pain Management because I was having a severe deep pain on my lower back kind of like Stabbing pain. I couldn't do much because it would hurt. Walking was difficult after 10 minutes. Standing was difficult after 10 minutes. I was miserable and unhappy and my friends were worry about me. So, my surgeon send me to pain management and they said that it could be my Socroallic joint. Well. I ended up having 2 injections on my Sacroallic joint left and right and did it hurt. Once the injections were done I got up the table and I had no control of my legs. I was very scare and I thought I was paralyzed. It is been a little over a week since my injections and I believed that the injections might have helped me. However, I need to give more time to make sure the injections worked.
3- So, now I am under LTD from work but I am afraid I might have to go under SSI for the rest of my life. I am scare that my life turned out this way. I live on the east coast and I am scare that the cold weather is going to be an issue for me. I'm a 47 yrs old male and I feel that my life was kind of destroy because of my health. I feel that I will be in pain for the rest of my life.
If anyone read this please let me know your opinion and suggestions. I will appreciated very much. Eduardo
