Good evening. Hope you all ate lots of candy tonight. My MRI shows lots of stenosis, osteophytes, and bulging disc at C4-5, with nerve root impingment. Lately my right neck and upper shoulder are causing me a great deal of pain. PT and deep tissue massage hasn't helped. Do I go back to the neuro-surgeon who did my C5-6 fusion, or to a regular neurologist? Who is best suited to do shots, or do they do shots in the neck for these problems, since I already have one fusion? It's getting to the point where the pain runs 8-10 all the time. I can't afford to take time off from work for another surgery, and can't afford it either. Just want to make 4 years and 8 months until I retire. Then they can chop me up again. If I live that long!
)( Or anybody have any other suggestions? Pain clinic out, live 300 miles away from nearest one. Thanks for any help.
