Due to DDD, I had bone hitting bone in the L5/S1 joint because my disc had disintegrated and had the Charite’ artificial disc replacement surgery performed Feb. 2006. I continued to have lower back pain which radiated down the back of my legs and feet. After all the injections I could have, I had the spinal cord stimulator implanted on Oct. 2007. It helped for a while but it seems as if I am getting used to it. I am still on muscle relaxers and pain meds that I may never get off of. I have had more injections since the stimulator was implanted and supposedly, mine is in good position.
I am very disgusted and wish this pain would go away. .
I thankyou for your comments. I am going to pray for you that your pain becomes more bearable to you. I can see that you have been through alot. May god help you through this very bad time for you.
