I think if the doctors got their nerves pinched they would be in the ER calling for Dilaudid or something to ease their pain. They even tried to cut me off the Norco and Ativan. W/C sent me to this pain management clinic for 2 1/2 months and tried to talk me out of using the meds for pain. That was after they tried Methadone and Suboxone (Subutex) to take me off Norco. Now does that make since. Hospitalized twice and ER 3 times for pain. No go. Waste of time. That's because my surgeon wanted to remove the hardware. I think they are afraid that the fusion isn't solid. My surgeon even told them that it is. That he would almost stake his life on it. ALMOST, I guess some doubt. I must be getting close to over 1/2 million $$ and they are getting uneasy. W/C told me that I might have to stay on Norco for ever. I want the surgery first. I am not staying on Tylenol for ever. LOL I would probably be turning yellow here real soon. :D
