Has anyone else had good long term results with spinal fusion?

Has anyone else had good long term results with spinal fusion?

I just had an epidural 3 days ago and my doctor doesn't want to do them anymore. I have seen many failed surgeries with patients worse than before and don't want this. I worry that the osteoporosis does not make me a good candidate for this surgery and as a nurse, I know how overconfident doctors can be! Of course, I will get a second opinion. Also, I am moving this weekend to take a job on the beautiful Calif coast that includes room and board!

Diagnosis

Diagnosis

My fingers are starting to go crooked, I have pain in both index fingers, ring fingers. Also now I have ache in my thumb. Dr said it looks like ostio. They have never tested for anything. I have never had an answer. I am getting lumps on first joints also. Can they do blood test to say what this is? Thank you

Can I take Strontium and Tymlos at the same time?

Can I take Strontium and Tymlos at the same time?

I have several compression fractures that have been fixed with Kyphoplasty. I want the best bone help I can get. I take Tymlos/Forteo pharmaceutical grade calcium, vitamin D & k. I really want to take Strontium, but the Tymlos people say I should not. I really need to know if that is true? Thank you!

Vitamin K2

Vitamin K2

Hi! My doc has me on Boniva (from which I'm on withdrawal due to side effects) and 600iu calcium + 800iu D3 twice daily. I ALSO take a WEEKLY dose of 50,000mg vitamin D3. My Question is, what about vitamin K2? My reading suggests a need for K2 in order to direct the calcium from soft tissue to the bones. Does anyone else include K2 in their supplement regimen and, if so, how much do you take?

Thank you for the positive feedback. It does my heart good, as well as my bones. :)

My main complaint is lower back pain. I take muscle relaxers and pain relief. What do you suggest?

My main complaint is lower back pain. I take muscle relaxers and pain relief. What do you suggest?

I find that a lot of walking and standing for long periods makes the pain more severe. Are there any exercises that could help with this. I have a gazelle exercise machine.

My doctor recommended walking for back pain; I do it every morning and can tell a difference when I miss a day. Seems counter-intuitive but it does… read more

Any advice on having surgery for vertebrae compression fractures?

Any advice on having surgery for vertebrae compression fractures?

I am some what frustrated and cannot fathom living like this another 40 yrs of continuous back pain, if I should live that long. I am asking this because I cannot take pain meds of any sort. My daughters have told me to get CBD oil to help relax and sleep at night. I refused to take Forsamax after doing some research it also doesn’t seem to be the right treatment for me.
