Back Problems board


I had my surgery dec.6th of 06 and still havent started PT. I had 2 falls down my steps( about 12 of em) after the surgery and got a compression fracture out of that. I dont know if that has anything to do with the surgeon holding of on PT or not but they still have me on heavy duty meds. Duragesic patch 50mcg every 2 days and 600 mcg actiq(180 a month). My insurance loves paying for that one. 1 months dose costs insurance $5280.00 a month and costs me $20.

Anyways, i feel like i can do it but when i try to litf anything at home my back tells me otherwise.
