I had/have the same experience. I'm 24 and in 2010 I too had a fusion with the cage and screws. I improved for about 6 months then started to deteriorate. I'm now in more pain than I was before surgery and my mobility is down to almost nothing. I'm hyper-sensitive to pain medications so many simply made me horribly sick and I had to take such high doses of others that they became too risky to continue. My husband too is wonderfully supportive. I'm about to start a new series of alternative treatments. I wish you luck in finding some relief.
