Hello every one in the spiney
Two years ago in a near death collision i suffered intestinal rupture from Blunt abdominal trauma,required surgery imediately,cervical injuries at C 5-6,C 6-7,lower back lnjuries at L5,S1,and right shoulder (rotator cuff).
I had all the indicated tests,EMG,MRIs suggesting ACDF C 5-6,C 6-7 and right shoulder surgeries.
June 21 2013 i had my ACDF and almost 10 weeks later Aug.27 i had rotator cuff surgery and currently 3 weeks post op incisional abdominal hernia.Lately the problem with my lower back worsens to the point where my NS and second opinion spine surgeons agree that surgery is the only option left something i don't want not even to think for now.Recent CT scan (may) shows that my neck isn't fused 100% yet i do have appointment with my Surgeon in 2 weeks to look at the options..
After two years im in constant pain p/t doesn't give any relief currently on opiates,Opana ER 10mg,Oxycodone IR 10mg,Ibuprofen 800mg(even though not fully fused),Zanaflex 4mg,Neurontin 600mg,Valium 5mg,and antidepressant Wellbutrin 100mg.and i also had 3 rounds of epidurals recommended by my PM doctor.
Very painful jurney,very depressed, so many times i qestion if there's anyone up there why i survived that accident if i'm unable to live life? i'm verry private person and don't talk to any one about what is going on inside me not even to my wife and children,they see me suffer and that's enough.This my story wishing a painless day to all.
