Re: Ortho Spine Doctor Visit

What kind of oral meds are you on? You aren't a candidate for the scs, but what about the morphine pump? If you are taking a fairly large dose of one of the more potent drugs and they aren't helping enough, you should be a good candidate. Mine has helped tremendously. I have Fbss at L5-S1, stenosis, ddd, scar tissue, etc and the pump has been a life-saver. Just something you might want to think about.

Good luck.
