I haven't posted here in a long time but.........In Feb 08 I had a 3 level acdf c3-6.In April 09 I had a L5 discectomey.my back is stil killing me. Today I had another MRi, Cervical x-rays,and then met w/neurosurgeon. He says all looks fine in the Lumbar and cervical area's. I told him Icant stand the pain anymore. he said perhaps it's muscular but I have severe multi level arthritis in these areas. He said possibly hecould put in a dorsalcolum for pain but usually these are for leg pain and success rate isn't that good. I want no more surgeries !! I'm on Oxycontin & Oxycodone now , but this neuro is referring me to this other dr. and possibly get trigger point injections. I had these b4 in my neck and I dont think they help. I think it's a money game and I dont like needles....any adviceplease?
