Herniated discs lumbar spine. Idet procedure, pro disc replacement and spinal fusion l3 l5. Some discomfort 6 years after last surgery. For most part I felt great, until recent and now I can hardly move. Was on several narcotic pain meds for many years, along with lyrica. Decided I wanted nothing to do with meds and have been off everything for few years now with the same level of pain . Meds did nothing for me.
