Yesterday I ran into one of my daughters friend who is a licensed massage therapist. She asked how I was doing after my ALIF and ADR. I have good days and bad days and take vicodin for pain. She would be willing to come to my house and give me a complimentary massage to see if it eliviates some of the pain. My husband is scared to death and will not allow me to do this because he is afraid it could do more damage. Is this true? She would even give me a discounted rate so its a really good deal!!
History- L4-L5, L5-S1 herniated discs with tears
DDD,spinal stenosis, major nerve damage in both legs
ALIF & ADR-May 2009
Vicodin 7.5/500 3 to 4 day, just takes edge off, motrin in addition, requesting transfer to PMD on next appt
Hubby has lots of concerns because there are days I can barely walk. Need others experiences with massage therapy to plead my case LOL!!!
