I named this wrong in my last post.
It is osteopathic, not orthopedic
here is my question:
Re-cap- Had PLIF L5/S1 OCt 15 07; no pain. Six glorious mohths.
Sudden "settling" 4/23/008 (that is what Md called it. Rught groin, leg and SI pain and piraformis.
Ihave no idea what settled where- all I can understand is something is pressing on nerve- Very frustrated after those 6 glorious months of no pain.
No meds worked.
Sent me to Pain Managementat at my request.
Have just learned of O.M.M. (Orthopedic Manual Manipulation) and wonder if it is worth it.The Md recommened is not an Orthopedic; he is D.O. specializing in this area.
Also would it cause harm where I am fused L5/S1.????
I have had 3 steroids (Lumbar, SI, Right Hip and 3 more to go. PM says next step (if needed) is nerve alblation and then if that does not stop pain he can do the SCS trasnmitter.
Any thoughts? Anyone been there with this?
