Some recommendations.; Failed 2 level ADR
Topic Started: 17 May 2017, 09:31 AM (73 Views)

Since my operation in 2009 I have been unable to sit down at all.

Since the operation other areas of my back have become problematic as I use them for extra pressure to compensate for not being able to sit down.

I have been provided funding to go and get some sort of review from a surgeon who has dealt with ADRs that have made things worse.

It's L5 and L4 and I have Active L replacements.

The sitting pain is 10 out of 10 instantly. So it's time to at least investigate properly before the rest of my back becomes much worse than it already is.

No pain management or medication has worked. I have tried everything in that respect. I have seen a few surgeons but non qualified in ADR so none really willing to take me on.

Are there any Surgeons in the UK who have helped patients who's surgery has failed spectacularly ?

I understand there might not be anything that can be done but until a qualified person can explain to me why I won't stop trying to get help.

Thanks in advance.

only on here every three or four days due to personal circumstances and not got anyone that I can personally suggest anyway. Names that spring to mind are Mr Kai Lam and Mr Jake Timothy but reading others stories is the best way forward and you do right to keep trying to find some proper answers. hope you find something out soon.
