Went in on march 22 2016 for my L4-L5 re exploration. Come to find out, I had tons of scar tissue built up.. The surgeon removed tissue, cut more bone away, added 2 more bolts and another rod.. Now I am completely fused at L4-L5 level. Pain wise I am 7 out of 10.. Prior to surgery I was 9.. I am jobless due to the fact I was let go in January.. This was my 3rd back surgery in a year.. The first was a lumbar disectomy on may 13 2015, 2nd was sep 9 of 2016 for my L4-L5 fusion.. Now my recent surgery on march 22 2016.. Still in pain, limping not as bad.. Very frustrated knowing that pain not gone away.. I'm on long term disability, Had my post op on April 8, had change meds due to allergic reaction, not starting physical therapy yet, basically every 2 weeks I'm check in with surgeons office to see progress.. I was told if I still am in pain, might be an option of spine stimulator. But I have heard that it will work and won't work.. Sad part is I'm 38 years old, I was in printing business from 1997 to 2016 when I was let go.. Lots of heavy lifting and repetitive work.. All my pain started July of 2014.. Come find out, I had cervical disk issue.. That luckily was workers comp.. And surgery was November 2014.. That was a success.. But after all that when my pain went from neck to back..
