Ok guys. Just need someone in the Atlanta, GA area to pm me with a neurosurgeon. My last surgery, a PLIF, was done by an ortho. Since surgery in Nov. of 2008, I've been "holding my own" even though pretty much in constant pain, until this past weekend. I was doing stretches and turned the wrong way and felt something pop or move???? The agony! Went to my massage therapist and it hasn't helped. The pain is back to the level I had just after my last surgery. Meds don't help. My tens helps somewhat but I've used it so much I've almost blistered my skin. My past doc is the kind that was quick to label my surgical outcome as "failed" and blamed it on scar tissue although there was none evident on my postop mri. So now I need to find someone who will at least take his or her time to try to figure out what I've done now. I just want some names so that I can research them and find a doc who might be willing to work with me. I think it takes a special doctor who is willing to work with "failed back surgery" people like me. I have fused just fine. It's just that the surgery has made my pain twice as bad as it was prior to surgery. So if anyone knows anyone in my north Ga area???
