Hello everyone...and thanks for reading. I find so much support on this board and I thank you all so much for it. I have an appt to see an orthopedic sugeon this afternoon and I'm scared to death. I picked up my MRI's yesterday and all the reports from other doctors that I will need to give to him. Since my accident I have had 2 months of Chiropractic care....4 months of pain management care including 3 injections and nothing has really helped me. My pain is such an inconvenience and gets in the way of my quality of life. (I know many of you know what I am talking about on that one!)
The hydrocodone and tramadol are not even cutting through the pain anymore and when I have one of my stabbing attacks to my back at night....nothing can touch the pain I feel. I'm just so tired of feeling sorry for myself and I'm hoping that this doctor can tell me something good that will help me. Had anyone out there had good experiences come from their first visit to their ortho sugeon? Will he prescribe me medicine that actually takes away the pain when it hits me? I'm just so full of questions for him...I took the apporpriate steps and I wrote eveything down that I want to talk with him about. Any advice before the my time to leave would be greatly appreciated! Thank you and god bless all of you ......hoping your pain subsides for the rest of the day!
