Thank you for your reply! That is the diagnosis Deformity of the Spine. I have all you have, plus, and I have read that lumber fusion doesn't do a lot for our age group and will end just as your has. I am very sorry to hear that in your results, your condition has worsened. I have tried all kinds of medecine and the only one that lessened my pain was Percoset (sp) and of course no one will prescribe it. Good luck!

I too am in a place where the people who need Percoset can't get it because all the "seekers" have made it almost impossible. I am trying Nucynta right now and it does not even begin to touch the pain. I have a Harrington rod and had bone grafts taken from my ribs to integrate the rod with my spine (lumbar) . From L4-T4 I am fused so the top and bottom are really taking up a lot of slack, and causing more pain all over. One ablation left me so wounded that one year later it is still very pained. I am afraid to have anything else implanted in my body, but some days are just enough getting through. Not living, but waiting for the day to pass so I can go to bed. Other days I can manage but just. God Bless you all and Merry Christmas!!
