I have had disc replacement fusion in my neck, no problems. I went back to work at a very physical job. Recently I had a lower spine fusion. This is giving me a hard time. I take 3 muscle relaxer/nerve pills, Meds for depression. The pain I have is way worse than what I had before the surgery. Hindsight is 20/20. If I knew there was going to be this much pain and limitations I would have never had the surgery. I was a single mom that was used to playing ball my kids, and going to their games. Now I don't get out of the house unless it is a doctors appointment. I have so much scar tissue surrounding the nerves, it is cutting some off. I have an appointment with a big city doctor to see if they can help me. The doctor that did the surgery I refuse to go back to because when I told him I was having problems, he informed me that his surgery was successful and I wasn't in pain. Now I have bad discs in the middle of my back. Will I ever be able to play with my grandkids?they keep asking why I can't play with them. My last surgery was a year and a half ago. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
