I had a cervical fusion a few years ago with great results. When I had my first lumbar fusion (L-3,4) I recovered with rehab's help fairly well. But when they did the 2nd lumbar fusion (L-4,5), which could have been done with the first lumbar fusion, I never fully recovered. And my back pain has, and still is, going downhill. I am riddled with pain in my lower back and rt hip, going down my rt leg.

I don't know what lies ahead but I sure hope I get some relief before 12yrs go by.

I'm glad you are "painfreenow". I'm just sory it took so long.
