I'm Dixiejo and am new to this group, looking forward very much to learning from others.
Recently, I had 2 back surgeries - kyphoplasties. While they stabilized the 4 vertebrae, it also left me with 1 vertebra leaning into and compressing the spinal cord, a 30% reduced spinal canal in that area (stenosis) and also levescoliosis.
I also have 9 herniated disks, DDD, arthritis and fibro.
Am allergic to all NSAIDs. Just started using Forteo.
But the surgeries left me weak as a newborn kitten and with a lot of pain. The people at rehab therapy say they don't know what they can do to help me. My doc says no PT because of my risk of fractures. I do not have osteoporosis.
I'm at a loss for what I can do and don't live near top facilities.
I read about something called VAX therapy on the web, and am wondering if anyone has tried it and what their opinion is of it.
Any ideas of comments most welcome.
