i am under pain managment for a deteriating facet joint in my lumber region.
3 days ago i had my annual radiofrequency done but had to had it on both side this time, the pain was really bad this time but i stuck with it. because they use xray machines to see exactly where they are working my Dr saw somethin on the left hand side of my spine, between L5/S1, she said there was a seperation but mentioned nothing els to me, she was really busy on my back and i didnt want to interupt her and forgot to ask her about it after (as b4 the surgery they gave me a cocktail of pills to relax me).
i have asked the question on the pain management forum but only got 1 response just telling me to go back and see my Dr, but i just feel really fed up that there is something els wrong with my back. i am 35yrs old and been suffering with this facet joint problem for 8 years now, i am on arthritec, tramadol (max dose), ametriptaline, and diazapam, now i am just wondering at what time in my life will i have to abandon the crutches and buy the wheelchair.
sorry to moan just feel a bit down
