Back Pain
Jun 19, 2008
Hi all,
I haven't been on the board in a while. My back problems go back 30 years. I have 4 lumbar surgeries and 1 cervical surgery. I just had a laminectomy at L4-5 on March 4th. On May 23rd I was involved in an auto accident. I was hit at about 30 to 35 mph in the drivers side front. I went to the E.R.. They did an mri of my neck and films of my lumbar to make sure the fusions were intacked. My neck at the fusion looked good, above the fusion not so good. The fusion of the lumbar looked intact. The problem is now my lumbar back and hips and left leg are in intense pain. I went to my spinal neurosurgeon and he said give it about two weeks and then we will do an mri. I am hurting worse than before the last lumbar surgery. I don't know what could be causing all this pain unless the disk at L4-5 ruptured. I am so pissed I was just starting to feel pretty good too. Also alot of people have said to get an attorney. I really do not know what to do. The people who hit me had insurance and my car is getting fixed. My insurance is paying my healthcare bills. I have got a rental car. But the one thing that keeps weighing on my mind is what has this wreck done to my spine later on down the road. Any input would be appreciated. Well thanks for letting me whine for a while.

WoW tincan , you have some bad luck there . Wait until you get the CT. if there is anything wrong due to the accident get an attorney . If the other person caused problems their insurance should be liable.. Bills / pain and suffering ..

Good luck , and wear your seatbelt .;)[QUOTE=TINCAN;3614608]Hi all,
