laminectomy did not work
I am desperate for advice. I had a terrible accident in late. 2012. Was working cash for mriontract so no insurance. Inlaws paid for mri
Showed severe herniations at L4-5-S1. Fell directly on tailbone and felt like 50 lb weight at lower back with feelings of severe tingling, burning, electricity etc in feet. Can not wear shoes except some flip flops. Had to quit job. My husband is recently handicapped from botched neck surgery and severe infection and placed in isolation for 6 weeks. We moved in wirh his parents who are mow invalids so we take care of them and house. I function on major pain pills and neurontin/gabapentin. Acquired gold card in houston --harris county insurance and finally had laminectomy and decompression on dec 10, 2014.
Absolutely no improvement!! I was told that fusion has been only answer and back to regular life but has somewhat high risks
Does anyone have some input about this fusion. I wait on my inlaws hand and foot plus run a household, groc shop cook clean, dr appts, medications for everyone and much more. I'm about to have nervous breakdown. Just applied for obamacare marketplace exchange and maybe have fusion. PLEASE HELP
