Spinal Stenosis 2 1/2 years after Spinal fusion
I had a Posterier Lumbar Interbody fusion 2 1/2 years ago. I never got rid of the pain in my right buttocks, hip and leg on the right. And right after surgery I started with pain on the left also. I have taken vicodin since surgery and have never been pain free. I had to finally go on disabilty. I lost my job of 30 years. MY queston. The past few months I have had more trouble with walking. I use a cane but the pain had been so bad I have had to severly limit my walking. I had an MRI and it showed spinal stenosis. I am due to go on rhe 16th for my first injection. Has anyone else had this problem? Did the shot work. Everything I read sounds negetive about the outcome.
