Over the last 3 years I have had 2 surgeries an they want to do a 3rd. The after the 1st surgery L4-L5 fusion with an artificial disk I was sent to a pain management doctor. The 2nd surgery was an SI fusion on both sides. I left the original surgeon at this point because I was still in pain and I felt like we had reach a dead end and he wasn't willing to look for the reason I was still in pain. Now I have seen another surgeon whom I like and he is suggesting yet another surgery. This is fine but I would like a 2nd opinion. Well when I told the PM doc today his response was you either schedule surgery or we are going to taper you off the meds. I am still dumbfounded, I'm shocked!!! Can this really happen? I am in tons of pain and I feel like I have been threatened just for wanting another opinion! After both surgeries I have ended up being in more pain than when I started!

Any advice????
