Re: Chronic pain medication change question
no problem topkat. i, and MANY other swho have dealt with sooo many stupid and insane 'doc decisions and surgerys, really ARE here to try and help others who also need some help(i really could have used this place BEFORE my many surgerys occured, trust me there). and guidance thru alot of medical crap we all have to navigate thru at some point in our lives it seems. i actually have a plate and four screws that desperately need to come out, but the stupid NS who i saw, only because i KNOW she is simply one of the tops around here, refuses to 'do" anything on me right now mostly because i suffered very severe spinal cord damage with a surgery done right "into' my cord. so it is attacking the vert levels both above it and under it, lovely.
while that pain management section can help ALOT with just about any medication and pain doc/clinic type questions, there is also a spinal board way down in the "S" section too that deals with mostly the c spine areas and surgerys. and there is the back forum is for areas anywhere beneath that c spine like the T, L and S areas as well. just not too certain just what area/level your surgery was done at?
everything listed in all of the forums here is listed alphabetically, just so you know tc. they also recently added many more sperate forums here too that are much more condition specific. but the forums i listed above really should be able to help you. good luck, and i may see you in some of the forums myself. i hang out in those sp boards and pain management ones alot. just find the forum you need, then start asking the quations you need answered,K? **
