Back Problems board


Hi Kathymac,

I have had 3 laminectomy/fusions and a whole bunch of herniated disks still remain. Ray cages in the lumbar at 2 levels. I recently had to have a CT scan and a nerve conduction study. They could not see much for the hardware in the scan, but in the study the doc told me there were multiple problems. He started at the ankle and only went up to the mid calf. He said he did not have to go any farther. I take duragesic 100 q48 hrs. and oxycontin 50 mg q8hrs. I go in to see the pm today. I am having some terrible pain this morning and really can't sit here any longer. I just wanted to respond to you and will write more at another time.

Thanks
