Yes I only coughed and had horrible pain in lower back and leg. after tons of tests and phyiso i could no longer carry on and agreed to have spinal fusion which only give two weeks pain free and returned not in one leg but both. it's nearly two years since the op and again tests phyiso and more medication. my mri this week has shown no change since the op and nothing else to be reported. I'm pleased but yet still disappointed as I know I'm worse off now than before. has anyone else felt this way and is there anything I can do.
