I had my l4-l5 spine fused after a lifting accident that tore my disk. I'm in even worse pain than before the accident. One doctor says my fusion has healed and suggested facet injections. I tried the injections and they provided no long term relief. I then had an injection in my tail bone and this provided relief (total numbness) for about an hour.
It feels like a ripping or tearing pain on the right side of the fusion. What tests can be done to determine what is causing the pain and could this pain be hardware related.
