Discussions that mention morphine

Open to All Other Health Topics board

My Spine clinic Doc has recommended this procedure (nerve destruction by way of burning) as the next step after 9 lumbar injections with only 1-2 days of relief per injection. I was rear-ended in a car accident Oct. 2007 and still have severe back pain from it. He says this could give me longer term relief, 6 mos. or more, but it sounds very painful recovering from the actual burning of the nerves. I was given a script for 20 mg. morphine while I think about having this procedure performed in the next couple of weeks. Anybody that has had this done and can comment on the success or failure to respond would be appreciated. Please help. Thanks, PJ:confused:
