    Sorry to hear that Muzza001, I understand that pain medication can be addictive but it all depends on your quality of life…… if the pain medication helps you then I think that’s a good thing…….. you just need to learn how to manage the medication……do the specialists think the fusion will help?

    Have you ever tried meditation?
