Hi I am so glad I have found you. I am researching treatment for my boyfriend he had a fusion about 15 years ago In the past 3 years his pain has increased to the point he goes to work and to bed We were referred to a orthapedic surgeon who orderd a mri since the hardware is so large ( the tech called me in he had never seen so much) they can not tell what is going on and will not touch him does anyone work with a surgeon who might help us?
The dr who put all this in suddenly closed up shop about 6 mos after this surgery I will take him anywhere to get him help I think I need someone who thinks out of the box
All the doctors tell him is to take pain meds he is taking percocet but it really dosent help He is only 45 it is affecting his entire lack of life Since the pain is increasing I assume there must be something wrong in there the pain radiates from his lower back ( the surgical site) down his legs and up to his neck
any encouragement or advice would be so apperciated We live in the Pittsburgh area but as I said I will take him anywhere
