I twicked my back going on 5 yrs ago since then I have had 2 disk herniated surgeries, fusion L4 L5 and a back stimulator put in. Since then nothing has helped, the drs say there's nothing more than can do so they have me on a pain reg which consists of Morphine 15mg time realese 2 a day, and Oxycodone 10/325 for break threw pain which barely do much. I hAve had several injections, epidurals, ect.. Nothing is helping and this is low back pain that goes down my left leg and foot!
