Hello, I seemed to have lost my post so I'll write another one.
I going to a surgeron in Atlanta, GA and I was wondering what will they do for me. I would like to know what I am getting myself into before I see him. I would like to get educated about different surgeries. I have L-4 thur S-1 that have herinated and I'm in severe pain all the time. My accident happened back in 2007 at work. I've gone through the ESI and Myleogram test that did show I had herination but at that time it wasn't that bad but now almost two years later its gotten bad. I'm taking Fentanyl Patch 25mcg, Neurotin 300mg 3 pills 3 times a day, Zanaflex 4mg 2 times a day and Mobic 2 times a day. But I have breakthrough pain most of time.
Oh yeah and I been to two other surgerons and they will not touch me. They tell me it is very hard to recover and you'll be in pain. I told both of them I'm in pain already what more pain can I be in?
So my question is have any of yall had surgery for three herinated disc what kind of surgery did you have? How long did it take to recover and had your pain subsided?
I can't even pick up my kids or do house chores and I'm only at work for 4 hours. I can't live my life like this anymore and neither can my kids!
Please help Thanks in advance!
