Fusion Surgery 1 Year Ago. Back Pain Worse

Fusion Surgery 1 Year Ago. Back Pain Worse

A MySpondylitisTeam Member said:

Sorry to hear this but as you will see on here a lot of people are worse off after the surgery than before with more pain or pain somewhere else, it seems to me that one surgery often leads to another one somewhere else. You need to do a lot of research before considering surgery, speak to other people who have already had it done and see what their experience is and research the surgeon who will do the operation and check he is recommended by others who he has operated on before. My brother in law had a heart operation and it was later discovered that the surgeon wasn't a qualified surgeon at all, this is frightening but it does happen, fraud can occur in every job but when this person literally has your life in their hands it's a terrifying prospect.

I've been living with chronic pain over 10 years and become use to hiding it from family and friends! Severe days I stay in my bedroom with ice and heat watch comedies and meditate and also listen to cardinal melodies (they have beautiful tones)!! I do not like to share my agony I'm a person to care for others!! That is why it took me a year to post!! I wish you and your family the best support, love, peace, and God's Blessings!!!

Hi Sherie5678, I have added you to my team. I'm with you. My friends dont know that I am in a lot of pain but I try my very best to go to lunch with them once a month. The only thing I am on is Gabapentin and Tylenol and Advil. I don't think the Gabapentin helps too much but I stay on it just in case it is helping. I hope you had a good weekend and will have a good week. Sending you hugs and prayers!
