I've had a spinal fusion operation for a grade 3 spondylolisthesis 27 years ago I am now 45. I had the operation at Harlow Wood at Mansfield Notts. I also have a scoliosis & the start of cervical myelopathy, sciatica, a tethered spianl cord & pain all over my body which has got considerably worse over the last few tears. There is nothing surgically that can be done so it is just a case of trying to manage the pain which is hard work in itself as nothing really seens to work. As a result of this I have become more isolated as nobody seems to understand what is wrong with me, because its not cancer or an illness they recognise they don't want to know. Being like this has taken my life even though it is not life threatening. I just wondered if there was anybody else out there in a similar situation who has had a fusion a while ago and now has problems with the rest of their body being in constant pain. I just feel like I am on the scrap heal at 45.
