Hello :H . Well I saw my surgeron last week. The first thing they wanted to know was if the injection work, NOPE!
I told him that my quality of life is getting bad. I told him that even getting, in, and out of the car is bad. I have found that standing, or sitting for even a small amount of time is horrible too. I can't even excercise, it is getting VERY depressing. The pain is so bad :''( .
We discussed what has went on over the last 6 years, and he is afraid that I may have permanet nerve damage now because this should have been treated long ago. He didn't even want to fuse at first, we did the discetomy first, then the injection. He also was upfront, and told me that he will not say that I will be 100% cured. He said that excersice after surgery is a very big thing. If this helps even 25% more, I will be fine with that. I just want to feel better. On top of this I have also been told that I most likely have fibromyalgia (sp), with chronic fatigue syndrome. I go see a specialist for that this week, and a gastro doctor for ongoing problems! I am a walking medical case at 30 years old :T . I used to be so hopeful about things, and I am not anymore. I am actually going to start counseling in a few weeks. I do take meds for depression.
Okay, I know I am writing a book her, but I was just wondering something. I have been taking tramadol, and hydrocodone 7.5/500 mg for awhile now. The hydro works for maybe a hour 1/2. My PM doctor put me on Oxycontin 20 mg. Well this med is a killer, i have to cut it to peices.(That is some strong pill, very hard to cut!!!!). Anyway, this med is making me feel horrible! I am very sick to my stomach, headaches, you name it. The problem is with the hydro, I get hives. I am very sensetive to meds. Just wondering how, and what you take to deal with the pain.
Thanks for reading, and any input, good or bad, Send it my way!!!!!
