Is this even possible?
I'm not gonna burn everyone's eyes by putting my life story up here, but i have 4 screws and two rods at my L4-L5. back was broken in 1998. surgery was not done until 2004. the pain has worsened over the years to the point now where im hospitalized with "paralyzing" pain at least once a month.
I’ve asked if the titanium can be removed, the muscles moved and sciatic nerve moved out of the way and the vertebrae “cemented” back to the spinal chord. No one can give me a definitive answer. This is 2014, I find it hard to believe that there is little progress being made in the field of back surgeries and “cures”.
Even if this process is possible, I fully understand and accept that it won’t take away ALL the pain, but it could possibly decrease it considerably. I also understand the risks when dealing with the sciatic nerve.
I don’t care where I have to travel to, if someone can help me, I’ll get there somehow. I’ve tried everything and anything over the last decade and a half including acupuncture.
This is the extreme short version of my story, so with this information, is my idea possible. Is anything possible?
