Need lumbar surgery
Had back fusion in 2003 l4-5. Very successful. For the past 9 months have had pain in legs, back and thighs. Had injections, discography, and mylogram. Disogram showed two bad disc (L1-2 and L2-3). Went to the surgeons office yesterday he said I needed lumbar salvage surgery. It is as follows: Fusion L1-2 and L2-3, disc removal/replacement L3-4 L5-S1, remove hardware from previous surgery L4-5 and put in rods/ screws L1-S1. If I don't then Morphine pump, or stimulator. Not sure what to do.....what a messed up back. Has anyone had this much surgery? And what were the results? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
