approx. 8 years ago I was diagnosed with DDD, facet joint disease, end plate changes, which resulted in a stress fracture of the L4/L5 vertebrae leading to a double fusion 2 years ago (2017) which has failed as I still get the same pain if not more.
Pain radiates from my lower spine throughout my whole right leg to my foot, and it appears no amount of opiates or muscle relaxants can control. I have been on shortec and longtec since surgery, also pregabalin and anti depressants.
I have tried numerous alternative therapies and exercises but nothing ever appears to give any relief.
frustratingly I am only 41 years old, have two young children who I struggle to look after, struggling to hold my job down and feel as if my marriage is failing as my wife has had to create a life without me as my only relief is lie in bed.
PLEASE HELP!!! I am at the end of my patience
