L4-S1 Lumbar Fusion still hurt
I have a question for those of you that may be in a similar situation as myself. I had back problems when I turned 16. After 8 years of pain and finally not being able to control my legs as I should I decided or I should say my body decided it was time to have the surgery. I had the l4-s1 fusion done and I felt better for about a year. Well I had that surgery when I was 24 and now I am 30 and I still hurt all of the time. My legs hurt and my lower back .I have even now noticed my mid back is starting to kill me. I have yet to hear of anyone telling me they are better off after they had 2 back surgeries. I have always herd the first one is usually ok but never get a second one. I don't even know if I need one but I can assure you the pain I am in 24/7 is not treating me very well. I guess to make a long question shorter do I get stronger medicine and more of them or do I try to get another surgery? I am taking norco now and have been for quite some time however, that is not taking care of the pain or hasn't been taking care of the pain for at least 4 months now. I feel like I am way to young to be taking medicine at all.
