Failed fusion or is it !

Started by Hoss on 05/11/2010 11:29am

I had L4/L5 & L5/S1 fusion with rey cages about 12 years ago. For the next 10 years had great succsess. last couple of years not good at all major issues with pain. My pain Dr. says it's a failed fusion, per the CAT scan Ortho. surgeon disk above is the problem. Now I'm going for a 3rd and 4th opinion. So while they fight about what is wrong I am still living with the problem and pain day in and day out. Question, why would I go to an Orthopedic surgeon vs. Neuro. surgeon? I am also on Hydrocodone 10/325, for pain and that is just not making it. Still working, But I think that will end soon as I can't hardly get thru the day. Any guidence !
