I am 35 yrs old and have had 3 back surgeries over the past 2 years. the first was a discectomy 2-was disc fragment and the same with the 3rd. now after an MRI i have another small bulging disc L5-S1 and another small bulge below that. i have to see my surgeon in a couple of weeks. Pain meds Oxycontin 20 mg 3x daily, oxycodone 5 mg 2x daily and gabapentin 300mg 3x daily. not really working. I am taking aqua therapy 3x weekly and no relief. i know before i had my recent MRI my surgeon said there is no way a 4th surgery would be possible but i an hoping that after he sees my new MRI he will change his mind. I am in pain 24 hr a day, there is not a time when i am pain free or have even the slight bit of relief. I am out of my mind and don't know what to do anymore? Anyone else out there like me?
