Re: Follow up from last week (discogram)
Hi Queenie - I too had surgery 18 months ago, an ALIF with removing L4 L5 replacing with titanium discs with BMP and fusion. I was in surgery for 6 hours, hospital 10 days, and rehab center for 4 weeks. Since I had the surgery I am in worse pain, the pain is in the buttock and goes down my leg. I am on lots of meds but still suffer in pain, I cannot sit for more than 10 -15 minutes, standing and walking is no better. I'v had PT, epidural inj, trigger point inj, accupunture and more that I can't even remember. My surgeron does not know why I still have pain, I don't think he believes me! He wants me to have a myelogram now...it just goes on and on...I don't know what to do..at this point I do not want any more surgeries, I have had 3 so far. I know what you are going through...your experience sounds alot like what I have been through.
