ok last i left you i was going to the er, i called m OS one last time and they demanded that i come back and be re-admitted, they felt they released me too soon. i had a lot of debris from m L5 disk that was when they had the fusion discovered it was rattling around with nothing hardly attached to it so i just got released today from the hospital i feel a good 60% better than before they changed my meds im on valium, oxcontin gabepantin, celexa, ibuprofen 800 and 1 more nerve med i cant remember. they really took care of me this time and im very happy that alot of my pain is gone. I would recommend my surgeon to anyone, he truly does care about the well being of his patients. He truly didnt feel comfortable releasing me until i was comfortable. his team is awesome and i cant sa enough good things about him.
As to all my new friends and brothers and sisters in pain on these forums, i really couldnt have made it through all of this without you, this forum is a blessing to us who are in pain , scared, or just curious, so again thank you all for the support and kind words. I love you all!
You will get better i know it!

  • Ethan, so glad you are back and doing better, and finally they gave you some good meds to get you through! Now you follow all those instructions and keep on top of the pain. Set an alarm at night, it helps to keep the pain from getting away from you. Take care, >:D< Cali-Sue
  • I've been wondering about you Ethan! I am so glad you went back in. I just knew that you needed some serious help. It's great to hear that you are doing better. Now that some of the pain "stress" has lifted you should see improvement weekly or so.

    Glad your back. Welcome home.
