My condition keeps me from enjoying life with pain in my neck,shoulders,arms, lower back. I had relief from pain after my Fusion C4-6 in spite of having damage due to Spinal Cord compression. I have Footdrop in my right foot and weakness. Then I had C6-7 fused and no problems after surgery. I have Spinal Stenosis so it's going to spread throughout my Spine. Now my back is hurting with 3 Bulging Discs and Spondylolesthesis at L5-S1. I was using a Cane a few months ago because my balance was off. I might be starting P.T., but for now I'm just taking the Tramadol.
Some days I don't want to get out of bed . Pain just depletes you of all energy.
