I am such severe pain and nothing is giving me relief. I am on hydrocodone/acetominophen 10/325 and that will give me a 1-2 hour break, bringing the pain down to a 4 or 5 but I only get three a day. The rest of the day it bounces around the pain scale from 6-9 depending on what I'm doing.
I am desperate to keep my career, so I usually take all three hydrocodone while I'm there, but since the job requires me to perform most of my worst triggers I have been ending the day at 9 if I can even finish the full work day.
I don't go for my neurosurgeon 2nd opinion until April 8th. I have plenty of non-prescription pain control things that I use and none of them have been working. I am mentally drained. I don't know what to do and I'm feeling desperate.
Microlaminectomy and discectomy at C7-T1 on April 26th.
