So I had my second si injection today and so far nothing good is coming out of it. I went in with a lot of pain and came out with about the same. Hopefully that will turn around but last time the only relief I had was right after the injection so I'm already losing some hope.
I told my pmd about what was going on and he pretty much said it isn't your medications and that was it. No advice no thoughts nothing.
As for the liver enzymes he gave me percocet without the tylonal. That makes me happy but the pharmacy won't have them until Friday. He also increased my lyrica to 150 mg three times a day.
So that was pretty much it. I have to say I'm a little disappointed I want someone to actually figure out why I have such a hard time peeing. I'm to the point I want to change my doctors. One doesn't want to do surgery because of my age and told my pmd that while he was leading me to believe that it was possible but we were waiting to see what tis injection would do. All I want is to not have so much pain. I told him I'm having more pain now than I was a month ago. I'm not sure if something in my back has changed or if I'm getting used to the medication.
I won't see anyone again until dec 6 and I'm hoping to get some answer on what to do now. I really want to know and cant beilve i forgot to ask, is why the dr I've been seeing to talk about surgery went from talking about scraping the discs to fusion after seeing my new MRI.
But I guess I'm asking what would you do next? The only thing that has changed in the last year has been no more leg problems. The back pain is still there and at sometimes worse than a year ago. Two years ago well let's just say I'm a lot better than two years ago but my quality of life pretty much sucks. I can't do so many things I think are my job, like keeping the house clean, taking care of certain innings for the kids. I cook dinner which is sometimes a job itself and do small things for the kids.
Sorry I've just been upset a lot lately and I don't know what to do anymore. I had a meltdown yesterday because of the things I can't do and never for even a second being pain free. I guess I just needed to vent a little
