Ok, so I've done everything every doctor has asked me to. My pain is with me every moment of every day. After failing at aqua therapy, I went back to the neurosurgeon today. He says he doesn't think anything he can do surgically will relieve my pain. But he doesn't offer me any other options. We know I have a disc that bulged out last year and then disintegrated, but he can't help me with that. So what now? He's referred me to another surgeon that I see in another 3 weeks!
I am getting so depressed by all this. I've been dealing with this for 2 years. I'm no good to my husband or my 3 beautiful girls like this.
It got to me so bad today, that I walked out of the hospital after waiting 1/2 an hour for my x-ray. I told them I was tired of waiting, and I left. (actually, that felt pretty good) Don't know what my doctor will say when he sends down for the x-ray, but frankly, I don't really care.
Thanks for giving me a place to vent. I'm just so tired of all of this. I can't live my life on pain killers.
