I had my mri on thursday and it was confirmed that I have no choice but to go for surgery on my back. I will be having another EMG. A referral has been sent to an orthopaedic surgeon and a neurosurgeon. This could take up to 18 months. We are doing the emg to see how much more damage has been done as I can no longer walk due to the pain.
My doctor thinks that because it is this severe I may not have to wait 18 months.
1)I will be in Mexico for 3 weeks in Jan. How close to the surgery could I go on vacation?
2) I am on lyrica. It is too expensive and I do not have a drug plan. It's costing me $500/month and I am on maternity leave. Any other drugs to take?
3) If you have your back fused can you have an epidural for pregnancy again (if pregnant again i will have to have a c0section)
