sacral fractures and spinal fusions

Started by bentale on 04/28/2011 2:14pm

Hello, I had a spinal fusion at L5S1 complicated by a sacral fracture 3 days postop. Now I have chronic pain despite a spinal stimulator and medication (no narcotics). When I walk, my lower back tightens to the point that my legs "freeze". I can't lift my legs and must use a walker to even drag them. This happens without warning. My feet feel like they are walking on jello all the time. All of this is complicated by a leg length discrepancy due to a hip fracture and hip replacement. Has anyone experienced this? Would appreciate your input.
