I am so tired of hurting! It's been 9 months now since my ACDF c 5/6. I have felt worse than before surgery this whole time. I just saw a new NS. He told me that he would not do another surgery now. I had a CT scan to check for fusion. I will see him next week for the results.
My medicine has been changed. I am now on oxycontin 15mg 2xper day & percocet 5-325 4 x per day. This doesn't work. I was taking the oxycontin 10mg twice a day & the perc. 5-325 2 every 4 hours. This new schedule is unbearable & honestly I have taken 2 rather than 1 perc a few times now. I left a message for the Dr. asst. on Monday. Still no return call. I guess they don't want me to take more.
I am tired of living like this. I wake up take my pills & lie on my heating pad until the pills kick in. Then get ready & work 8 - 9 hours. Come home & spend the night in my recliner with my heating pad.
Will I ever get better?! I am sorry, I guess I am more down than normal tonite. I have been more & more emotional & sad & upset lately & I don't like it.
