Hello, I'm new, so let me brief on my story. My husband got hurt on the job almost 5 years ago. He was in federal law enforcement.While at work one day he was responding to a body alarm(for a fellow officer)he slipped on a wet floor,first hitting a table and then the floor. he landed on his hip first and then his back. He was seen by the prison physcian and sent right away to the hospital. I met him there, where they took exrays so forth and so on. Following this he entered physical therapy, which didnt help at all.It wasnt discovered until 6 mnths later that he had broken his hip in the fall. we were told it was too late for any surgery as the hip had already healed improperly. He had 3 herniated disks s1,L4 and L5. He saw a pain management doctor for nearly three years. He has been on every medication imagineable, had epidural injections, nerve blocks,etc. In the beginning he did not want surgery, but after almost 3 years of pain management, in which nothing seemed to make him feel better, he started to consider it. He also started to use a cane 6 months after the fall. He walks leaning to the left because of the pain in his right side, running down his sciatic nerve, he suffers from numbness in his right leg, buttocks, and left arm. His pain mangmnt dr. took another mri only to discover that he now has 2 herniated disks in his neck. We sold our house in pennsylvania and moved to Florida thinking the weather would be better for his back. Also the salt water is great when we can be in it. He has some manageable days but most are unbearable for him. he has been on morphine for over 2 years now and his current Dr. has recently put him on the fentanyl patch as well. He just started seeing this Dr. and he has started him on the same treatments he had before. The ones that didnt help. Epidural injections and next week nerve blocks. I dont understand why we are going through this again. its been over almost 2 and a half years, his condition is far worse than before, if they didnt help then how will they help him now. He has all the previous Drs. reports. My husband has been told he will never be able to work again, which is hard enough for him to accept, he is only 42 years old. I am at such at loss as to what to do for him. PLEASE HELP US!!! we would appreciate any advice on the matter..
