Chronic leg and lower back pain
I had spinal fushion on L4, L5-S1 2 years ago, after coming out of surgery my right leg was numb and in extreme pain. 1 year later the pain in my back returned and I started gaining weight because I was unable to work out. The surgical pain clinic decided they wanted to insert an electronic stimulator, but another doctor told me that I might get about 50% relieve of the pain but because of the weakness in my leg it would not be to my advantage to have it done at this time. The surgical clinic now states that they do not know what to do. I have been on pain medication for 10 years and on everything out there and nothing is helping. My main problems are lower back pain, leg pain and weakness.
