Help? Fear of having surgery on my L-4, L-5 and S-1
Hello I'm a 30 yr old woman and I had hurt my back at work unloading a pallet of produce while I herinated L-4 through S-1 and boy I'm in pain! I had ESI's Facet injections, SI injections pain blocks, nerve blocks, and any other blocks I could get. I do have sereve pain down my left leg but now is going down my right leg. I have problems getting up in mornings due to being so stiff and hurting all the time. I'm on Neurtion 3 pills 300mgs 3 times a day, Vicodin 3 times 500mgs a day and Tramadol 4 times 50mgs a day. Doc said he couldn't do anything else oh Also on Mobic twice a day. So WC doc stated me as MMI. My lawyer said he don't think so and is getting me another doc to treat me.
Anyway, the wc doc said all their is left is surgery and he doesn't really want me to have it but I'm in so much pain why not?
Will it cure me or will it make me worse?
My question is what will they do to my L-4 L-5 and S-1 area in my back? Anything is better than being in pain all the time 24/7 days a week? I think Neurotion is messing with my brain, at times I forget to spell out a word or type all the letters but in wrong order!! WoW! But he also told me that I can't up my dose for Neurotion that's all I can have. Why is that? 2700 mgs a day write? 3x9=27 Well it isn't doing any good is their anyone taking more than that does it help?
Well I gotta go,
