Hi Dani, I'm sorry that he told you the "live with it" crap, but at least he was more compasionate. It makes such a difference doesnt it? Oh well...
You've been told that you need a fusion, havent you? I know you've been to about 435 doctors, so what's the overall vote? Have the majority said fusion, or live with it? You know, as a side note; it's pathetic when they say live with it, because guess what you geniouses. We are living with it!!! We are living with it every day, and if this is what we wanted, we wouldnt be running around from one doctor to another...Aaagghhh....
Well Dani, I don't know what to say about the pump. I can't tell you, no don't do it, because YOU are the one in pain. You have to deal with it, not me or any one else. I am against drugs, and alcohol. I was pretty clean before all this. If I knew I was going to be so drugged now, I probably should had smoked a joint when I was a teenager. Anyways, when the pain gets out of control for me, I would take anything, anything anyone would give me to make it stop. So, girlfriend, do what ever it takes to have a half way decent life for now. Until you find help. Morhphine pump can not be your solution or your treatement, it has to be temporary until you find some thing. You know, you are going to have to go through a detox program after all this is done wether you are on vicoden or morphine. Just make sure girl that this is only temporary if you really need it. Okay? We are not going to give up, live with it, accept it, or any of that, okay? We have to make it bearable for right now, and if that means morphine pump, so let it be.
Take care of yourself, and do what ever it takes to have a normal life for now. You are too young to be suffering, and too young to be told to live with it. You have your whole life ahead of you.
My thoughts and prayers are always with you Dani. Maria (Bos)
