I had two spine surgeries and live with more pain now then ever before. I feel everyone in this forums pain everyday and lately been thinking what I should do about it? I don't think I can live like this anymore, I have tried everything under the sun and honestly feel I have been taken advantage of. I am away worse off now then before fusion, 2 level lumbar. Dr used infuse bmp bio morphogenic bone growth material in an unapproved by FDA surgery in me, my 2 level lumbar. The bmp was only approved by the FDA to be used in an anterior 1 level fusion. All I am capable of doing is laying on my couch and doing small very small chores around my house. I cannot drive,sit, or stand for more then 15 minutes. I pray so hard everyday for some relief and it only gets worse. God bless you and I hope you get better, really I mean that for all of you suffering from any kind of pain. You are all not alone.View Thread
I had two spine surgeries and am in worse pain now then ever before. It's amazing what the human body can be put through. I had 2 level lumbar fusion 2 years ago and my surgeon used infuse bmp bio morphogenic bone material in a posterior fusion when this material was only approved by the FDA to be used in anterior 1 level fusion. My pain after fusion is 1,000 x's greater. God bless you and I can only pray that no human being lives with this or any kind of pain. The physical pain turns into the worst mental pain anyone could imagine. God bless all who are suffering.View Thread
