I was curious if any one could answer some questions I have.
1. Diskectomy is an Out-Patient Procedure?
2. How long before the pain goes away?
I had diskectomy surgery on Dec. 1,09. Checked in at 11am.
Rolled into Surgery at 12:45pm, Dishcharged at 3PM.
They sent me home under anesthesia & morphine. I awake
5 hours later in excruciating pain. They gave the same
pain meds. I've been on for the last year or so. I called
Called Dr.'s Office they told me to deal with pain and if
I ran out early they may not refill my prescription?
What kind of Doctor does this to a Patient?
I call about legal advice and am told nothing I can do
but suffer. He did nothing wrong per say, just doesn't
care after he's got his money I guess.
