Pain medications available in Canada? I was unfortunately knocked off a 16ft roof in May 08. Fusion to L2-L5 with Stryker hardware. My post-op has been tough with after 2 yrs of uncontrolled severe bruising and just feeling terrible other than pain. The culprit was allergy to "vanadium" which is an alloy used in my Stryker hardware. I had the rods/screws removed in spring 2011. I feel somewhat better now just dealing with high levels of lower back pain,spasms and lower leg pain in both legs. I recently noticed the color in my foot digits is off. The dull pain in the legs is however not as severe as my lower back. The pain clinic in Surrey has diagnosed me with "Failed back Syndrome". I have found a rather high number of people post op with this syndrome. I am currently prescribed 40 grams a day of medical marijuana. Which I juice to (CBD) 5oz a day as I dislike the "high" from activating the thc by heating. This however with laws changing and in court is compounded by my WCB insurer not wanting to pay the cost of prescription. I cannot afford 320.00 a day buying from a government grower. I now have had to go back on Tylenol #3's. I have done the big medication loop and the Tylenol seems to be the best fit for me other than the 5oz daily CBD juice. I am having nothing but heartache trying to get Tylenol prescribed on a long term basis. After all this and dealing with roller coastering pain management I am in a constant battle with dealings with WCB. MY QUESTION? "Has anyone in Canada has Sativex prescribed and paid for by WCB?"
