Hi all! This is my first time to do this. I am 39 yrs old, with herniated discs at L2/L3, L3/L4, L4/L5, L5/S1. I have been informed in August by a Neurosurgeon that my back is inoperable. Since all of this started in July, I have had epidural steroid injections, gone to physical therapy and am currently seeing a therapist to do hypnosis. I am taking 300 mgs of Lyrica, 60 mgs of Cymbalta and as many over the counter pain meds as I can. You might ask why I am not taking narcotic pain relievers. I have not taken any narcotics in 96 days. I am an addict. I was in Afghanistan as a contractor and had kidney stones. They gave me IV morphine, oral Percocet and IM stadol and Toradol. I was on a constant IV drip of morphine for 23 days. This landed me in detox and rehab. Now, they wont give me any narcotics. My PCP has referred me to NS again, but I don't really have any hope that they will do any thing for me. I am going to ask the pain doc to set me up for an SCS. Any ideas to help with the horrendous pain that I am in would be greatly appreciated. P.S. I am also losing control of my bladder at night, and having troubles during the day.
