Re: 2 year post op pain and muscle spasms
Hi and welcome to the board,
I would be wanting to know if it's another disk thats herniated or something else before having a scs implanted. Is your surgeon a spinal specialist? I'm just curious as to why they would suggest that before knowing for sure whats causing the problems.
I also had fusion of L4-5 in 2004, and have experienced alot of what your describing. I've had Ct's and x-rays done. Not the Mylogram though. Just recently I've found out that I'm not fused!! Also, that I have a herniation at L5-S1, lots of DD and a bulge at L3-4. So, I'm right there with you in the pain dept. I've been doing stretches, had trigger point injections, heat, ice, various meds, and have gotten very little relief.
I hope all works out well for you and that your Ct will show whats going on. Take care and please keep us posted on what you find out and how your doing.
