I had neck surgery ACDF C4-5 C5-6 April 2015. After having neck surgery I ended up with severe lower back pain. Had a difficult time sitting, standing, walking, standing and sleeping. The pain is so severe it wakes me up at night. Almost a year later I have been seen by several doctors, had MRI which showed a lesion on T-11 had a whole body bone scan no cancer "thank God" had a CT scan then a biopsy on T-11 no cancer. Still dealing with severe lower back pain and no body seems to know what happened to my back. I'm told I will have to live with it. So all I have left is to pray a lot and ask God to heal me. Hope this helps people out there that are dealing with back pain.
