back problems vs. heartburn and nausia?

I have a long medical history, however I will try to make this short as possible. I had a double fusion with instrumentation on my L3/4,L4/5 IN JULY of 2006. It did help with the pain in my left leg. But the trade off not so good. I have pain, that has got increasingly worse through the past couple years(since the surgery) in my middle to lower back. I had an MRI 11 months ago and it showed that my L2/3 had collapsed. Anyway, this Dr. told me not to have anymore surgeries and go for an epideral and physical therapy. I did neither one because of money. But I am also having another problem in the past 6 months or so. I get constipated, and that is causing terrible nausia. And I have to throw up to get any relief. I really don't know if the constipation is causing the stomach problems. (I had a surgery to remove an ulcer 6 yrs. ago.) "I guess my question is this:" Has anyone had this problem due to lots of back problems with screws and rods etc., and collapsed vertibra also? I think they said they saw a spur also on my lower spine. Could something be pressing on a nerve or somthing to cause these symtoms?(nausia and vomiting?) My tummy is touchy. But I hadn't had any problems with it since they removed the ulcer at all. My pain is terrible also. Sometimes I think the pain nausiates me. I take a lot of pain meds. Well, thats all I can think of to tell you. Hope someone can respond to this and give me some insight. boomer

Boomer....there can be so many variables on this one....I suspect the constipation to be a big part of your problems....are you on any meds?
try stool softeners and bland diet for awhile.....I know this is a far stretch but I had stomach troubles for 5 years and not one doctor (7) ever checked me for this common infection that was the cause.....I had "H-pylori" (sp) and was fixed in a matter of days taking antibiotics.....with your surgery and the ulcer I would do the simple blood test to rule that out first....what type of proceedure did they do on your back? Alif,Plif,360,??? does mylanta and that type of thing offer any help?....if your bowels arent moving you will start to vomit and get bad stomach acids.....Ill check back with ya.
