I was advised that the disability I am suffering from is probably from the Medtronic in-fuse bone graft I had done on both my cervical and lumbar spine. My understanding now in hindsight the severe pain, the loss of feeling in my hands, the inability to walk or ride in a car for no more than 20 minutes at a time, lumbar pressure so severe that I am bed ridden at least 4 out of 7 days, sciatica, and nerve damage,
The lumbar fusion was done posteriorly and I believe that the fusion that way was not FDA approved, I have not been able to work since 2010 and there is no way that I can, I have tried everything from intense physical therapy, to tens units, to neurostimulator and now have to get caudle shots into the tailbone on a monthly basis, I see a Pain Management Specialist because of the pain meds and massive amount of Neurontin that I take that leaves me a zombie but keeps the burning from the permanant nerve damage down to a tolerable level, I thought I had a lawyer to help me. but did not take the case after waiting all this time, PLEASE HELP ME I will never be the same and I feel like a surgery that was supposed to be done anteriorly to avoid nerve damage deserves to be looked at,

Sincerely
Jackie Wheeler
