Spinal fusions, stenosis, grade 2 spondylolisthesis, degenerative discs, nerve pain, second fusion not stable. Treatment ?
Thanks for the follow up.
I have gone through your history in detail .You are suffering from spondylolisthesis L5 S1
post traumatic spondylolisthesis is at times difficult to treat .
You already had 2 surgeries for spinal stabilization .
Your pain & numbness may be secondary to original trauma or may be secondary to surgical insult . But it is highly unlikely to be due to surgical damage . As in spinal fixations we go away from exiting nerves .
Numbness & pain may be controlled by your current medications ,by increasing lyrica dose & adding some regular analgesic after discussing your doctor .
You can ask about any persistent pressure on nerves from your neurosurgeon .
Alternatively you can send your MRI SPINE images to me , so that i can guide you in a better way .
Feel free to contact me any time .
Hope i have answered your query.I will be available for follow up.
