hi everyone I haven't been on in a couple weeks, my pain has been alot worse lately. I can't sit long on the pc. I wanna get some advice from all of you. I finally went to the pain clinic on Monday and they do this complete evaluation, you know all my reflexes and everything. Now, reminder that I have been on comp since May, have been in pain since May, first MRI showed nothing then I was told it was a pinched nerve then after the myleogram told my screws were loose and there is no bone growth around the cages in the disc spaces. I have saw a total of five different doctors, anyway ... This Dr at the pain clinic says oh I can get rid of your pain you have a bulging disc at L3 and L4 we will give you injections that will help with the pain... Are you kidding me????? I have seen five doctors been in pain since May and just now someone is telling me this, lol right I am in aww then I am thinking you stupid doctor I have no disc between L3 and L4 it was removed as stated in my post operative report .. then he says we need a MRI of your cervical spine you are showing radicuopathy in your reflexes r u kidding me like I don't have enough wrong with me I have no pain in my neck... I am so confused and at my wits end I can not deal with it anymore I wanna crawl under a rock .. but unfortunately my husband and kids would follow me so that's not a option. Still waiting for the bone growth stimulator which is still not even requested no matter how many times I call, and honestly I am too far post op its not gonna work, I do have a second opinion set up for the tenth of Oct in Buffalo instead of Rochester .. I just don't know what to do
Sorry for venting.
