I am being recommended to have a l4-s1 fusion. I've tried steriod shots, physical therapy, had a joint block, as well as a discogram. These last 2 are tests to determine pain orgin; my disc. I'm taking alot of narcotics and since I'm a work comp case, taking there sweet time in getting me into surgery. Anyone have any recommendations for pain management that has worked for them? Thanks for any info you can offer.
