Hello everyone! :H :H As some of you know, my husband also has back problems. He had a lumbar fusion in october '07. Needless to say, the fusion failed. He is in chronic pain daily. He has not left the house in about 3 days now. He is relying on his cane to walk around the house to get to anything.
He does go to a doctor for pain meds, he has tried many things. He is currently on morphine 15mg, and percocet 10/325. He is drawn to tears daily. We have tried oxycontin to see if that would be a good drug for the pain, but it made him so MEAN :T . He no longer takes that, he took it for a month. I just can't live with him when he takes that medication, it was pure heck. ~X( .
We are going to see his doctor on friday for a follow up to see how he is doing, and I just don't know what to do anymore for him. He does have his days where he does feel okay, but for the most part, he is in chronic pain even with the meds. He is only 39, and I just cant see him go on like this forever
. It has even gotten me to the point that I don't think I even want to try surgery!!!!!
He did go see the surgeon that did the surgery on him, and he wants to go in and numb the hardware to see if that was his pain source. He will not do it. They are quacks I swear!!!! This is the surgeon that wanted to do surgery on me also at first. I just need some ideas here, and WE are both at the end of our rope :T :T .
Thanks for reading, and any suggestions you may have.
