I seek some wisdom this time instead of just support. I've had to surgeries in the last 6 months. 1st in August ACDF, and then December Laminectomy L-4 to S-1 to resoolve numerous pain issues in lower back, hip, and legs down to feet.
Some things improved, while others got worse and new things cropped up. Now I am on more pain meds just to try to manage the pain so I can function. It does help quite a bit, but in no way reduces enough to feel ok.
Before the surgery I asked the NS, what if this doesn't work and he replied there were other things he could do. I will see him on the 18th about that and I am thinking he was talking about possibly a pain implant or something like that.
I am asking if someone can give me an idea of what would be some possble treatments or procedures that he may want to try to alleviate this constant pain issue. I know no one here is a doctor, I hust want ideas as to what I could be looking at. Being in pain like this all the time is depressing and I am ready for a third procedure if there's a reasonable chance it will help espcially if it lowers or eliminates the need for pain meds. So please give me whatever ideas you may have.
Thanks for your continued support.
