Any help would be greatly appreciated. A little over 8 years ago I had a posterior spinal fusion w/ instrumentation to help correct my scoliosis. Things had been going good for years w/ the occasional back pain here or that. Over the last year and a half, my back pain has increased drastically. All in my lower back. I went to the dr when it first started and i was given loratabs and muscle relaxants because i was having muscle spasms and the lower discs in my back are starting to degenerate a smidge. Now the instrumentation is in the lower portion of my back all the way up to the mid back. Recently my pain has gotten more consistent and much worse. It's to the point where almost evreyday i have to take my medicine which was never the case before. I can't stand for too long, i can't sit for too long and I have to watch how I position myself. Has anyone else ever had anything like this happen to them? I'm becoming concerned.
