Tired of the pain,suffering,misery and everything that goes with being afflicted with chronic pain. I have been coping with chronic pain since 2004, I've had discectomy l4 and l5 as well as a spinal cord stimulator implanted in my back for then area.
Spinal stenosis,annular tears.,bulging disc,arthritis,herniated disc and Scheuermanns disease which my surgeon states he will not operate on until I am totally disabled due to seriousness of surgery and recuperation time. I am 50 years old and have been coping with back pain since I was 18 and diagnosed as chronic 9 years ago. I have stopped working and applied for SSD as the pain has become too much my doc has me on Fentanyl 75 and oxy 10 4 times a day for break through as well as muscle relaxers, anti inflams, anti depressants, lyrica for nerve pain. Most days I don't know what day it is the side effects are horrible from all the mess. I just want to treated and healed if possible and not just medicated as being medicated just is not the answer. I am so tired of being in pain I just want it all to end. Is that too much to ask for?
