Has anyone had actual success for relieving lower back pain by having surgery?
I had L5-S1 fused in 2008, and things have been great until 2014. My doctor thought it was SI joint issues from increased stress after the fusion so I had an injection but no luck. Now I am scheduled to go in and have one of the screws removed, as it can cause tissue irritation even if it isn't loose/broken. Let me know if you have any questions, happy to help answer them.
