I posted this elsewhere, but not sure where it is supposed to be? Thanks for any help.
Back with more questions? I have an appt with a neurosurgeon Thurs. morning. I really don't even know what to begin to tell him or ask? I have so much pain under the cervical fusion (entire neck) which I suppose would be the T spine? and I also have pain in my lower back where I have scoliosis. When I went to the 'pain' doctor, she gave me an injection in my lower back for a long time flare of sciatica. Wow, even she apologized for the pain it caused. She said that the areas were tight and close? I was in so much pain, I didn't ask what she meant.
After the injections tho, the flare subsided. Now I am having a problem with pins and needles in that leg, some numbness, etc. Cry. I don't know whether to ask him about the C spine, the T holding it, or the scoliosis?
What would YOU do? I am in constant pain with not only my back but have migraines caused from the same accident. I also think the neck issues are making my headaches worse? I appreciate any input before I go to see this new doctor. I've heard great things about him. In fact, yesterday he operated on a friend who needed three vertebrae in her L spine fused--she put this off for years, but they are saying everything went perfectly. But obviously I don't want any surgery if it can be avoided.
Thank you so much,
