Re: Need answers regarding severe pain with L5 S1
I have a copy of my MRI on a CD. He showed me where the S1 & L5 had no liquid at all and are bone to bone. I am now 5 weeks out from a Fusion.
Mine caused my back to slip out of place and severe muscle spasms would hold it like that, so he had to fuse it to keep the bone from moving, I just returned from a visit with him and the spine is already fusing very well. This is the first time my back has not gone out on me at all, soon I will be able to pick up my Grandchildren again.
If you don't have a problem with the spine, that is great!!
But mine ran my life.
Good luck to you,
