I'm scheduled for Micro'd on 4-8. I just left my PCP and he gave me a copy of the report from the Neuro. In reading it,he states that there is no guarantee of BACK pain relief, the hope is for LEG pain relief.And to get the pressure off the nerve root. Thats all well and good but,am I destin to live w/this chronic pain in my back? I dont understand why?I f they remove the broken part of the disc then why the pain still?
My doctor(PCP) is always in a hurry and doesn't explain things. Frankly, I cant even get a chance to ask. Anyway,I told him the 60mg's of MS Contin was making me sleep all the time. He's now given me Methadone 102 ? (Cant read his writing) Is that gunna make me sick and sleep all the time too?
