I busted my booty in my slippers, tripping over my little dog in the rain. I immediately felt stabbing pain in lower back and buttocks (rt side). I took my own meds and heating pad. NO good. Had to go to ER at 6am on Thursday morning. They immediately gave me Dilautid and Phenergren, took 4 xrays, 2 side, 2 back. Said my hardware looked intact and were fwding them to my surgeon. I was still nauseaus from the Dilautid, so they gave me a pill that melted under my tongue. When I got home, my sister almost had to roll me in the house, I was messed up. I slept almost 30 hours. I would go to restroom, run dogs out and right back to bed. Now I am soooooooo stiff I can barely move. Called my Dr's office, receptionist said he would look and call me. Of course no call. This is not surprising from this Dr's office. But I am ok just in more pain than I think necessary.
Hope all is with in spiney/necky world, Gimme a shout,
