Back Problems board

Thanks for all your help. It's hard to know what to do sometimes. I guess I really don't have much faith in the Dr's here. I hope that the Neuro will provide me with some better options. I've been reading about alot of different things on this board, most of which I have never heard of. By the time I get to see Her (neuro) I should be pretty well educated and at least be able to make an informed decision on a treatment plan - whatever it may be.
You were right about the patch it is a duragesic 25. I still haven't used it. I have to be honest - I'm not comfortable with Narcotics. I have simply tried to take it easy and not push myself to the point of not being able to tolerate the pain. Since I haven't tried anything else by way of pain management, I'm worried about the effect that something like that will have on me. Even the nurse in my Dr's office has indicated that I'm problably not going to like the patch, of course she said not to tell the Dr. that she said that. Oh well, we'll see. So far I've just been laying kinda low this last week or so cause I had a terrible cold and really didn't feel much like going anywhere or doing anything anyway, this next few days will be the test.
