Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't posted for awhile, but things have NOT been going real well over here.
I don't want to make this a extra long post so I'll sum it up with this:
I've had THREE surgergies in the past month (looks like one more coming soon) Had my3-level fusion (See sig) where they misplaced a rod. Second surgery was supposed to fix that, but they nicked my ureter. So the third surgery was from a urologist to insert a stent. Now I'm having problems with that too. My meds keep changing every week, I can't pee right, (that's what I'l probably have the next surgery for. they said I MIGHT need another kind of stent?)
Still having having back and leg pain.
Ortho tried Talwin NX for pain yesterday, but had severe side efffects after the first pill. (So now I've paid for that and can't use it. Now they are putting me on Lorcet 10/650 and Xanax.
I'm just getting so depressed with no end in sight to all of this. Money problems have really gotten the rest of my family in on the depression too. My next test is on June 1st. I have to have a IVP exam for the urologist to check on why my kidney isn't working right with the stent, which is going to be a whopping $250 co-pay!
Does this ever end?
Well, looks like this was a extra long post anyway, but thank you all out there for having the place to vent and ask those questions!
