Re: 4Back Surgeries and Still In Pain

Wow that is a lot back surgeries for the back you poor thing. You didn't say how old you were or if you were in shape at all. Has you dr ordered pT yet? Do you have a brace? How ant mg of neurontin are you on? Max dose? You can also mix it up with lyrica or topomax too. Topomax will take weight off btw.

Are you seeing a pain mgt dr yet? If not I'd ask to be referred to on. You need long acting Med's and your pain needs to be managed better. Please let us know how it goes, don't forget the ice not heat. A TENS unit is good too. With the pain in the legs you could be a good candidate for ab intracal (sp?) pain put inserted by pm doc but you got to get to one first.

Please don't lift, twist, bend, or push anything things have to heal and that sort of stuff creates scar tissue good luck cathy
