Back Problems board


Well I'm back in the fight with all of you...just got my computer back after a hiatus of getting it fixed for two weeks...prior to that my Grandmother died...prior to that I was put on LTD at work...now...onto the spiney stuff...

I've had it and you all have given me once again renewed hope that maybe a problem can be found...

Have had Botox in my piriformus about a month ago, had an SI Injection two weeks ago and that helped a little bit and now today had a facet ESI right above my fusion at L3/4 and we'll see how that goes...working with a very good physio that is trying to rule out what is causing my problems...same as you all...upper sacroiliac pain...hip pain...but I'm just getting sick of it all.

It is amazing to me that so many of us have the exact same symptoms after specifically the L4/5 L5/S1 fusions...why is it such a darn medical mystery to all of these doctors then?

I found it interesting that some of you have pain upon extension which from what I've been told is an indication of facet problems...also the lovely limp from the pain in your hip...I can totally relate!

Pepper or Moldova, anything you specifically had done diagnostically that helped to pin point the cause of most of your pain? I'm sick of feeling like a pin cushion and not getting many answers...

Well anyway...not sure what my intention of this post was...probably more of saying a hello to everyone as I've been absent for a while and also thanking you for keeping me going one more day...perhaps a trip to Europe for a facet replacement is in order...anyone want to book a package with me?
