Hello everyone I am new to the sight but have read many of the posts.I hope everyone is feeling well this morning.But if you are like me you are in continuous pain.I have had three back surgeries 2 in the early 90's and the 3rd in 2005.And I need a 4th surgery to repair 2 bulging discs above L-1.I have the steel plates and screws from L-1 to S-1.It has been a nightmare that's all I can say to everyone. I have had numerous pain block shots and RFA''s that I can handle, it is an ongoing cycle.I wish everyone the best of luck dealing with your back and leg pain.View Thread
