POST L5-S1 Fusion Nerve Impingement by Bone

Started by sshellenberger on 08/07/2012 2:04pm

Greetings all,

General question, my Surgeon has recommended a revision of my prior L5-S1 fusion due to bone growth that has impinged my S1 nerve RT side. CT Mylogram revealed this. I have chornic lower back pain and L5-S1 weakness and pain RT side. Would appreciate any info from those that have had this procedure. Prior surgery includes:

L5-S1 Micro-discectomy/Lamnectomy
L5-S1 Fusion
Hardware removal is a posibility on the RT side but not LFT. This is a concern to me. I currently receive Lumbar ESI's every 8 weeks for pain relief, does nothing for weakness.

Thank you for your time.
