Car accident cause a torn disn Dr did a fusion and dicectomy after the surgery the pain was unbearable we tried physical therapy, tens unit which actually does help however I'm unable to wear it for long periods of time, a spinal stimulator placed with no improvement and then removed it several months later, I've had every injection available to me, this surgery was in 2009 and it was the worst most painful surgery of my life. I currently see pain management cause I've been through several pain medications with no relief at all we have run out of options.
