When patients are experiencing chronic back pain, to the point that they are willing to risk invasive back surgery, the last thing those patients expect is to continue to have debilitating pain after they have fully healed from surgery. Patients suffering from pain even after the trauma caused during surgery has mended are experiencing Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, also known as FBSS.
For most patients, Failed Back Surgery Syndrome is disheartening and depressing. Just when patients are hoping to finally resume their normal level of activity, the pain returns (or never goes away!) and they are left wondering how to manage their habitual pain, now that surgery—their last resort—was unsuccessful. Studies show that 5 to 50 percent of back surgery patients experience FBSS as a result of scar tissue, reoccurring disc herniations, or error during surgery. FBSS leaves patients wondering what is the best option for treating chronic pain.
