Pain is on left side of surgery area the longer I am on my feet or sitting the goes up to 7 -9 now if I am in bed goes is 2-3 . I had hardware injections and not the hardware. I just had facet injections like 2 weeks ago no help. the Dr is saying lets wait until a year and still in pain will talk about spinal cord stimlater .I gut is telling me something is wrong with the fusion . I work in a lab at a hospital it is very hard to work in that level of pain . Do you think getting a second opinion is a good idea ?
Had L4L5 and L5s1 fused in 1999
