I was searching for medications when I came across this site. I have had several back surgeries. It started with herniated disc at L4-L5. After a couple laminectomies I started having fusions. To make a long story short I found out that I had a bad case of degenerative disc disease and the discs above my fusion didn't support the extra strain. This resulted in scoliosis and my spine looked like an S-curve in the road. After 7 previous surgeries (by 4 different surgeons) I had a scoliosis fusion from S-1 to T-5 (13 levels). I can now stand straight again but deal with constant back and leg pain. The nerve that goes down my left leg has been damaged resulting in pain and weakness. I have been on many different medications. Right now taking Exalgo with percocet for break through pain. Looking for new info or maybe I can provide info to someone else.
