45 years post-op spinal fusion w / harrington rod.
Hi I'm new to this site but not to the pain that I know many others go through. A little background I, was fused in January 1976 at 15 years old in Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children in Phila. PA . I have had all kinds of procedures and rx's over the years ,you name it, I have probably tried it. I am now 60 and along with the earlier problems now I have "OLD" problems added to existing and worsening ones. So is there anyone who has found relief with newer treatments? I had an ablation done as my most recent procedure but it took me a year to overcome the pain and numbness and weakness and at times unbearable cementness it felt like . Even my pain center said my condition was" bizarre"!! Not something you want to hear come out of your pm Dr.'s mouth. Needless to say I am very weary of a lot of things , I am open to all info, thanks for letting me ramble. D
