Back Problems board

Hi T-Bone, :wave:

I'm so sorry to hear about your accident, you must be a really strong person to endure all these years of pain :angel:

I agree with you, the docs don't help us enough [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/t_down.gif[/img]

I think most doctors look at us like we are simply a paycheck, and a name on a piece of paper [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif[/img]

I hope you can find a better med for your pain relief on your next appointment, I will be praying for you :angel:

Have you ever thought of trying the morphine patch ?

Please stick with us, we are a great family, and always welcome new members [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif[/img]

Take Care,

Two level laminectomy fusion L5-S1 & L2-3 done on 12/6/02.
Fifteen inch scar from the very top of butt crack (sorry), to the bra line.
BAK cages, rods & screws.(Titanium)
My pelvic bone was used for grafting.
Praying that the other two discs in between, won't have to be fused later, as I was told it was a possibility, due to the other two discs in between, not being in that great of shape.
Doc didn't want to fuse four levels, unless it is really necessary.
I would hate to repeat the surgery, as the recovery period, is so very painful.
I also have a free fragment in my T11-12 area, that I'm still refusing surgery for, at this point in time.
That surgery is way too dangerous for me to consider, until if affects my being able to walk.
