I didnt have any unusual side effects. The typical constipation, and hot flashes. That's what most of the pain meds. I've been on do.
My Orthos name is Dr. Joseph Barr, and he's out of Faulkner & Mass General. I see him at least once a month for follow ups. Unfortunetly he can't do much for scar tissue but he always makes recommendations. Today he suggested that I try having a IV Lidocaine (novakane ? IV) He wants me to ask my "juice" man about it, and if he doesnt do it then to find some one who does. If that doesnt work, then we can talk about maybe surgery. Big maybe. He's afraid I might just end up with more scar tissue. I'm having cervical disc problems now. He send me for x-rays today, and he's going to talk about it tomorrow with me. I hope its nothing too serious. I don't think I can deal with that now.
By the way, I wouldn't even send my dog to Faulkner for any type of surgery, but I trust Dr. Barr, and he does do surgery out of Mass General. I dont know if I have your email still, but I can send you his info if you want. Then maybe you can send me a list of docs that you liked too, because I know you've seen a bunch. My in-laws are in Maine and they are looking for a neuro there. I wonder what the name of the one you saw was?
Take care Dani, and let me knwo if you want Dr. Barrs info. I sure hope you find some help soon.
