I had scoliosis surgery at the age of twelve in 2002 with a forty seven degree curve. I had two Harrington rods and screws put into my spine such as someone mentioned that is known As a fusion. Five years later I began noticing more pain that usual and pretty much was just put on pain meds because my original surgeon no longer accepted my insurance. I we to five orthopedics that we're not willing to take on my case because i had already been operated on. Finally After being hospitalized more than four times for pain another ortho sent me for an MRI And under my rods are grade I spondylolthesis And spondylolsis of my l5 vertabrae With mild. Ass affects on my nerve roots. Also degenerative disc disease from l3 to l5 And from l4 to l5 there is a right aide annual tear. There was also a bulge from l3 to l4 causing central stenosis. In one yEar be ause I went last week oct 2012 it found i. Ow have levoscoliosis in my l2 lumbar spine it is only at 13 degrees but it only took a year for hat to be added to the list of problems I have. Not to. Mention cervical lordosis and two herniations Above my rods. I don't know where else to turn or what to do I was recommended epidural injections for pain but if it his is progressing at this rate and I am a 24 year old mom of three year old twins I dont want to just. Mask the pain until it becomes dangerous. At advice would be greatly appreciated thank you-kristan
