Hi Clifford,
I too had the IDET done on 2 discs in July. My progress seemed slow, but I did seem to be improving. I guess I overdid things at the mall (out for 4 hours) and had been trying to decrease my pain meds so I could pass the drug test to return to work (after 1 year) but I "relapsed" and feel like I did 1 month ago. I haven't even been cleared to start PT yet. Taking vicodin and vioxx. Elavil helped a little with the nerve pain but made me very anxious. I'm not really sure what the next step is for you or me. Your 6 months is up in November what did the surgeon say? Have you gone to PT? I don't know if they would want to repeat the IDET or do more invasive surgery. Do you have DDD at multiple levels? From what I hear that decreases the success rate with any surgery (Ihave it.) Keep me posted on what your doctor says. I see mine next week. Good luck.
