I broke my back at the fire station and had a spinal fusion from L4-L5,L5-L6 and a lamenectomy from L2 down. They did what's called a 360 fusion so I have a 6in scar on stomach and two 6in scars along both sides of my spine. I had my surgery end of October so I just hit the 4 mo mark. I was doing super good and was moving right along and my neuro surgeon said I was his first ever patient in 20 years that walked into his office one week after surgery without any assistance and could get up out of a chair and go up and down stairs like I never had surgery. Again everything was good then all of a sudden I started having ALOT of pain and found out my disc above my fusion has herniated pretty bad and having to have another fusion to go up another level. It's depressing to think about going thru that 7-8 hour surgery and be in hosp for 5 days. Has anyone else ever dealt with this?I have been doing hardware injection blocks. Ur it doesn't work.
