Wow I’m really sorry you have had such a bad experience. Was it neurosurgeon or an orthopedic surgeon doing your surgery? Was it the same surgeon doing all 3 surgeries? It’s sounds to that there is nerve damage. Try getting another opinion from a different kind of surgeon? Then there are non surgical products that might help with stimulating the nerves that no long fire correctly at Hanger. Have you tried that? I have had good luck with these products. Acupuncture is also something that helps with nerve pain. Good luck. Please contact me if you need any information on Hanger.
I moved your message to this thread https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/i-had-spinal-fusion-of-l1-4-about-15-months-ago-lately-ive/ where you’ll meet @nan57 @ladidy @stumpy @riverqueen1305 and are able to read their messages.
@nan57 too speaks of unresolved back and coccyx pain.
