No Fix from Spinal Fusion

I just had a spinal fusion on Sept 20th 2010. I have been suffering from lower back pain for several years. I was forced to stop working and that has been almost three years ago. I can say having this surgery was my last resort. The final testing that confirmed it was a bad disc was the disc biopsy, that came back positive.

I had a prior surgery, on June 23th of 2009. It was unsuccessful, simply because I did not check out the surgeons credentials. The disk at l5/s1 was not repaired and if anything, made worse. The point I am trying to make is, I completely agree with the articles, that if it is not broken don't fix it.

This is something, I will have to live with the rest of my life and I will never have my original parts back. I have not felt well since and now facing possible metal allergies.

My body has not been cooperating since the 20th of Sept. I am only 42 years old, just gotten married in 2008 and I have a 1 yr old grandson, that cannot understand why I can't pick him up.

I feel like I am rotting away in my home. I have worked had my whole life and since I haven't been working in 3 yrs. I stated my C.N.A. degree in science, which now is in threat of not being able to finish and the only credits left are my internship and clinical 2.

I never thought I would be facing what I am facing at this age.

Thank you, Michelle
