Back Problems board


[FONT=Georgia]I'm really glad to hear that you are getting a second opinion. This second surgery, will it be to just remove the broken screws? Or will he be re-fusing, or just what?

I think that your dr. is wrong to let you suffer...he could give you duragesic patch, oxycontin, mscontin, kadian, any number of medications out there. Is he afraid you might get "hooked"? If that's the case, you need to be in the hands of pain management instead of with him.

Good luck to you.
