I had a l5 lumbar fusion 3 years ago and I still have a lot of chonic pain. from my lower back and left leg. sometimes I can not sit on my butt because of the pain there also. A CAT test shows a screw at bottom is loose. my dr have not said anything about fixing. what should I do. I sometimes can not sleep set or walk from this.
I had the surgery in 2005, am so so sorry, hundreds of people on this site has had the same problem. I was told they cant find anything wrong, I am on soma and hydrocodenes, try a new doctor but please do research. Left leg will probably always hurt. As you will see, put in your browser S-1, L-5 still is hurting you will see web md. Heads up it can make you cry, and pissed at the same time.
