Failed Cervical Spine Surgery

Please help! I just moved fron NJ to SC. I had a fusion in 2002 that failed then after years of pain and many injections and tests is was discovered that my screw was broke and I had not fused. I went to the University of Penn and was recommended to see a doctor with the Rothman Group, I had a rod which has now given me a fusion in 2008 at the Rothman/Jefferson Hopsital in PA. However I have nerve damage from C2 - T3 and bi-laterly. Since then I've been treating with the Rothamn Group with Cervical Botox Injections, and Trigger Point Injections but I need a doctor here, as I cannot afford to fly back to Jersey everytime. I had my last shots November 2, 2008 but I am curently having major spasims and numbing in three fingers, I am taking a lot of pain meds, patches, ice, muscle relaxers and fentanyl patches... Does anyone out there know anyone I may be able to call for trigger point injections and help me with my pain, All I do is cry, nobody down here seems to care they keep telling me we don't do that or they want do do epidurals - which I had on both the left and right sides and neither worked for longer then 6 days... Please help me find a doctor!
