Have been on Hydro-7.5-750 for about 5 years after a level 1 fusion for chronic pain. I have found over the years that I have had a drastic change in both my personality and mood. Would like to try and get off pain meds (with doctor approval) but what other choices are there?
Have already done the whole 9 yards, PT, injection, etc..
Doctor only wants to do a major 4 level fusion with no guarantee that my pain would be reduced. Might just have to live with it rather then have these personality changes screw up my life any more.
How hard is it to get off these meds? Any suggestions?
