Question Anyone from south carolina going to PM?

My wife has her first visit to PM today.
What all hoops will she have to jump through to get
the meds she needs?

Her famiy doc has her taking three 5MG oxycodones a day and she is still
in a LOT of pain. It's her back.
I know they are doing a sterode injection today.

She is in a LOT of pain. I just hope they can help her.

Re: Anyone from south carolina going to PM?

Well, she saw the PM doc this morning.

She has a tear in the ligament and a bulging disc.
She also has no reflex in her right leg and little in her right arm.

The ESI will be done next week.

He only gave her a muscle relaxer and sent her home.
She is in tears it hurts so bad. I do not know what to tell her.
She did talk to him about the 5mg oxys not working or of they did
only for about 2 hours max. He agreed with her but gave her nothing.

What should I tell her? Is there anything that can help ease her pain?
Also what would make her have no reflex?

bk,
Most like ly she has no reflex because she has a pinched nerve where the disc has bulged. Has she tried physical therapy / aquatic therapy? there are good therapists that specialize in back problems.
