Re: Severe Leg Pain When Sitting/Standing post fusion

Hey Julieotis, I'm 30 now, and still very active (and part of my problem of overdoing it). I know what caused me to herniate my disc initially, but what got me was that I reherniated with no cause (i fell into that 5-10%).. i actually went in for a microdiscectomy to fix the reherniation but waking up to a fusion was frustrating. I've accepted what happened, and ready to move forward but in a way was not prepared for somethings that you don't get from literature but only from hearing others experiences. I am lucky that I do have the type of doc that gives you the time to sit down and listen to all your concerns and answer them fully but that only comes in intervals when your appointments fall. But they also aren't there as readily as the computer is, so finding this website has been a sigh of relief. Life is to short to let the fusion get me down, I'm finding its going to slow us down but darn it, theres still a lot more out there that are worse off and unable to do what we still can do, painfully or not... Don't get me wrong, I still am finding days I'm frustrated and angry, and especially finding out who your true friends are....
