Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS)

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS)

Failed back syndrome (FBS), also called "failed back surgery syndrome" (FBSS), refers to chronic back and/or leg pain that occurs after back (spinal) surgery, usually after laminectomy.[unreliable medical source?] It is characterized as a chronic pain syndrome. Multiple factors can contribute to the onset or development of FBS.

Chronic back pain

Back pain is a common complaint. Most people in the United States will experience low back pain at least once during their lives. Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work. Back pain is the second most common symptomatic reason for medical office visits in the US. Risk factors include age, general health, occupation, lifestyle, psychosocial, and cultural factors

Cancer pain

Cancer Pain

 

Pain in cancer may arise from a tumor compressing or infiltrating nearby body parts; from treatments and diagnostic procedures; or from skin, nerve and other changes caused by a hormone imbalance or immune response. Most chronic (long-lasting) pain is caused by the illness and most acute (short-term) pain is caused by treatment or diagnostic procedures. However, radiotherapy and chemotherapy may produce painful conditions that persist long after treatment has ended.
