Hi, everyone...it's me the one with a million questions....I had my PLIF surgery on 9/16/08 and am now having post residual leg pain, FIRE.....I mean my leg is killing me. Doctors office upped my neurontin to 400mg X3 daily and 5mg valium at bed time, ha!.....that's it....live with it! Do any of you know if PT has helped with this type of problem? (I feel this will be where they send me next)
Will this go away? I am scared to death this will not go away.....I've made it to the depressed stage after doing so very well for weeks. I wish I had never done this stupid surgery....ANY home remedys, tips, I am at the end of my rope! I have just sat around and cried for the past two days....this is so not me! I see the doctor on the 3rd of Nov. I want to ring his neck, but I'm sure he has no ideal.....not picking on the nurses, but she was the one to brush me off on this.......if the tables were turned, ha! I bet it would be a whole different ball game. Here we go through this....pay a small fortune for the surgery, and then treated like a number/pest...that really bothers me.
Well, thanks for letting me vent....maybe I will have one or two less cries today, thanks dear friends....you guys have been such great support....boy do I need that now....I'm about as down as down can get right now......Still keeping all of you in my prayers, Libby
