I first started having lower lumber pain some 25 years ago. Some 20 ago and after numerous visits to a specialist,it was decided the best course of action was to perform a double spinal fusion on S1 L5 which back then,was something relatively new. I had the a,spent two weeks in hospital but to cut a long story short things never really got any better and despite more visits to my local OS I can now no longer stand on my own,or even walk any real distance without chronic pain in my lower lumber region. I keep being told the fusion " is as good as it can be" by the same surgeon who performed it,trouble is he now tells me there is nothing more that can be done as age has caught up with me and my spine is 'crumbling with degenerative disc probs in L4 L3 and now mid thorax by all accounts. The pain Meds I take are Oxycontin for pain relief with no chance it seems of further help and I feel down and in need of some help?
