    Hi Lorraine666,

    I had my last lumbar fusion on 1/6/2021 ; all of my lumbar discs are now fused. I had been diagnosed with DDD, degenerative disc disease. I have had the following treatments:

    • Physical Therapy
    • Epidurals
    • Denervations
    • Three spinal fusions
    • One Laminectamomy

      Three months after the last operation, I started physical therapy again.

      I just completed six months of physical therapy at Professional PT in Bayside NY.

      Pain is still too high at a level 5.

      I am going to have Spinal Cord Stimulator installed Oct. 5. at HSS.

      You just have to keep working at getting relief and never give up!!!

      Be well.
