Hi all, as some of you know I had a rough 2016.
I had an unsuccessful disectomy in January. Then was given an epidural followed by facet injections bit of which gave no relief. At the that time my mri was very unclear so revision surgery was scheduled for September. During that surgery more disc was removed and fragments pulled from my nerve. Again this wasn't a success and actually put me in a worse condition. A subsequent mri was ordered and showed that the disc had again prolapsed but more so than it ever had.
I was told despite being made worse that nothing could be done. Fast forward a few months and I have obtained a second opinion from a neurosurgeon (all previous was under orthopedic)
My options are fusion or some sort of pacemaker.
Free the last surgery making me worse I'm admittedly scared going forward and wondered what people's experiences are with the above two options.
(Sorry for the long winded post)
