Good Morning! And, to all you moms, Happy Mothers Day!
Ok...on to the point. As of next Monday I will learn if I have to have another surgery...I cannot tell you how I feel about that...disgusted, depressed and angry are terms that come to mind right off the top of my head. But...if surgery is not an option I have been looking at Drug Rehabs where they offer physical therapy for chronic spinal pain sufferers. I mean short of a pain pump I don't see any other option. I have had so many spinal injections my back looks like a pin cushion and none of them gave me more than 3 or 4 days of relief. Right now, I take 80 mgs of Narco...and Soma...but, my need for more continues to increase. My main problem now is lack of exercise...my skin, even on my legs is just hanging from atrophy as I can't walk but a little at a time and in great pain when I do. I can't sit long, can't stand long, can't lay down long and am totally disgusted. I look around my home and see the things that need to be done and I just cry. We are underwater on our mortgage so their is no moving so we are stuck in a property that is going downhill at a rapid pace and I just feel if I could get rehab and off the pain meds my energy would come back...sorry this was so long..what is your opinion?
