Tommorow is the day I take my MRI and CT from last week to my ortho to see if he can figure out what is still wrong with me..I had my 2 level PLIF a year ago Dec 08, had hardware out Sept of this year. I kept thinking it was all the surgeries I have had(9 in 2 years). But my pain level dramatically increased with very simple PT, and my Ortho and I both agree that somethings wrong. I was trying to go down on fentanyl patches, and oxy for bt, and now I am back up and still hurting.
I am hoping that he finds out what is wrong. I did have 3 discs with tears, 2 bad and one not so bad. I am now wondering if I made a mistake by not having the 3 level fusion. He said he wouldnt do it, as it wasnt bad enough, and would do it later if it became bad. I didnt think it would be in the course of the same year.
Anyway, all my friends, please keep me in your prayers. I dont know how much I can take. I am just healing from the head surgery for the eye socket tumor, and my hair is growing back. But a new grandbaby is coming in Aug and I want to get my life back....Thanks and if anyone has any ideas, please let me know, You all are Great!
