Maybe some of you remember my adult daughter who until last week was PG - she had her baby by emergency C-section last Tuesday. Due to her back injury the baby was stuck, hence the C-section.
She was under the care of a high risk OB whom gave her 3, 5 mg percocets ( sp? ) a day. Which was just enough to keep her from being 100% bed ridden.
Upon being discharged she was given a referral to a local family Dr - yeah I know we all said huh too :??
Any ways she seen this Dr yesterday who has referred her to a pain clinic. Hence my question of finding a good one.
The pain clinic around here which I myself have been to - 100% of the times recommends a series of steroid injections. That is it. No matter what what your back situation is, that is what they do.
I for myself did a lot of studying on these injections and decided not to go with them. My daughter also does not want to go this path.
So when we are calling around what are some approtate questions to ask as well as to look for?
My next question is - say 2 people have the same injury but are 20 yrs apart in age, does that make for a situation that a treatment for 1 is not a good option different for the one who is 20 yrs younger?
I am considering back surgery for me - however our family tells my daughter NOT to consider it for her as of her age ( 27 yrs old ) :?
L1 - S2 "gone" useless in 1 way or another. DDD. RA. Bone Spurs. Tons of nerve damage/issues. Stenosis. Both knees replaced. 50 yrs old. I had a great fall (hence my user name) at age 41 and it has been a domino effect every since.
