Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Failed back surgery syndrome, commonly referred to as FBSS, occurs when a patient does not have a successful experience with spinal surgery intended to ease pain in the back, neck, hips, or legs. About 40 percent of people who go through open back surgery experience symptoms of failed back surgery. If you are one of those people, keep reading. You are not out of options. Causes of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome There can be many reasons why back surgery fails to ease pain or actually causes pain to get worse. Sometimes the original problem was incorrectly diagnosed, leading to unnecessary surgery or surgery in the wrong place on the spine. Other times, the surgeon misses a fragment of disc or bone which is left still putting pressure on the nerve. FBSS is certainly not always the fault of the doctor who performs the operation. Sometimes a patient develops a new spinal condition following surgery. Scar tissue from the original surgery can also lead to increased pain, as can damage to the nerves. Symptoms of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome Because there can be so many causes of FBSS, the symptoms can vary broadly as well. Some people find that their pain is reduced somewhat but not enough to make a meaningful difference in their quality of life. Other people say that their pain is not reduced but is actually worse after the failed surgery. Finally, some people do well for the first three to six months after surgery and then start to develop pain again. This is often caused by a new injury or by the formation of scar tissue. The site of the pain can vary as well. It may be located in the spine. Other people report pain in the neck or hips or shooting pain to the extremities. People with FBSS also frequently experience emotional pain such as frustration, depression, or anxiety. Treatments for Failed Back Surgery Syndrome Depending on the causes and symptoms of FBSS, there are many treatments available. They range from additional surgery to careful use of pain medications to exercise to electrical devices that reduce the transmission of pain signals.
