Looking for advice

Hey guys. I feel like I am running around in circles with things. February of 2012 I had L4/L5 L5/S1 fused. June 2012 I had SI joint injections done. September of 2012 I had a left SI joint fusion. I have scoliosis, disc degeneration and facet arthritis. Currently I have no touch sensation from my neck to my knees. I can tell when I have to use the bathroom only when it gets to the point of being really full. I just turned 30 in March. I suffer from migraines several times a week. Medication isn't helping much. I had to miss 2 of my kids tball games and my daughters dance recital because of a migraine. I see a new spine doctor on the 28thof this month. Any advice?


  • I wouldn't advocate for you waiting till things gets worse than this...get a doctor check on you ASAP.

    All the best and keep us updated.
  • Unfortunately the one I need to see doesn't have openings until later this month.

    I saw 2 other doctors in town already. They just want to do more physical therapy. My primary referred me to this one because of the other 2 not wanting to do anything else.
  • Saw the new doctor today. He brought up failed back surgery syndrome. It looks like my lower curve of the scoliosis has only increased by a degree. Ordering a new MRI from the neck down.
