I am going to the hospital for the first time to talk about the spinal cord stim. to be put in. First why the psyh. eval?? second how does the trial work??
Now I have herniated dics and other stuff wrong with my back and see that lots of you have had differnt types of surgery why?? What works better???
I was told by a nuro Dr. not nuro surgon that the injections would not work for me and that I need surgery. I send my MRI's in to mayo to see what dept. I would be seeing either PM or nuro surgon they sent me appt. for nuro surgon only to be told by the Dr. that surgery would not help. I am sure if I go to another Dr. he will say surgery so, that is scarey feeling. I would think all the Dr's would be on the same page.
Bottom line I am in so much pain. I am a tuffie but, this back pain has me in tears every day. I do not cry easy but this pain anyone would be crying. I am to the point that I would do surgery if it would help even the 50% that the Dr's have said. I see some of you it helped and some not so good. I have a wait until the 17th of April for the dept at mayo to get the ball rolling on the s.c.s but I am also scared I will fail the psyh eval due to all my pain and that would be a nightmare. Why a psyh eval?? thanks for any input You give me.
