Hello everyone, please I need to know anyone with this kind of surgery. First on 13th June 2014 I got a Micodisectomy and laminectomy in the same levels and on 09 August 2014 I got this Fusion. 6 screws and 2 / 12cms bars. My problem is that I feel worsed than before, the pain never dissapear just went down from 9 out of 10 to 3 to 4 all the time. Now I am 9 months post 2nd operation and been 8 month with therapy. I recover lot of movility but twisting and bending or running is not possible yet. in the Xrays everything looks normal and now they told me they will make a Myelography to check soft tissue or spinal canal. the pain is very ugly and feel it in my hips from the center of my spine where the surgery was and the left buttock sciatic nerve.
Anyone with symptoms like this ??????

Many thanks

    yes. I got discs removed, and intersomatic cages , 2 of them were placed. After surgery I was 2 month with masive pain and they check me and found I got an infection so with special antibiothics got better to the level of pain I have now. I have been for 6 month with therapies and I am much better but the pain is still 3 to 4 out of ten all the time and sometimes rise to 6.
