T10 Hemangioma

For the pass two years now I have be dealing with increasing pain in my mid to low back. I have had 5 drifferent type of injections, countless types of meds, and phy. therapy. Ok, now what? Nothing has been working and I have always said that I didn't want to be "Cut", but I give up the pain wins. I would like to know if anyone has dealt with something like this and what did they do to help or fix the pain. The doctors said that the hemangioma was pretty aggressive from most cases, but can't tell if thats was causing the chronic pain. The pain didn't start over night and it's just been getting harder to deal with. I've been on zoloft and zanaflex for the pass few months now, the zoloft make me nice to be around now. Most of my doctors (all five of them) think that the hemangioma inside my T10 is pressing to the spinal cord. I do trust my doctors and I feel they have been doing a good job, but I NEED THIS TO BE FIXED! Thanks any help would be great. K

Re: T10 Hemangioma

I have one too...posterior, at T10.

I had surgery on T7-T8 fusion, for a pretty big herniation. And I always felt the T10 pain a bit lower in my back...but it wasn't that bad. Since the surgery (3 months ago), the pain there is really pain. I JUST saw my doctor about it on Friday, and he is going to do T9-T12 facet joint Injections to R/O that the pain isn't coming from the joints. After they exhaust everything else, they will consider doing ANOTHER MRI to see if the extra strain from the surgery BROKE the hemangioma.

I know that surgery on hemangiomas are EXTREMELY dangerous...b/c of bleeding and paralysis.

Please keep me informed of your what your doctors are saying...I think that we are rare people.....most hemangiomas are an insignificant finding on the MRI.
