I just got out of the hospital. I was in for pain management after a myelogram. The neurosurgeon said that they probably niched me with the needle. I have never ever felt such pain in a buttocks or leg. The only thing that would touch the pain was dilaudid. I have several areas that are fused with hardware, and this was a study to find if I needed a C spine surgery. I was scared stupid. The doctors seemed the same way, as if they just didnt know what to tell me in regards to what was wrong at first, and IF I was going to get better. Im one week after the procedure, and still with pain and major burning in my buttocks and leg. We seem to be warned about the 'headache' which might happen, which I have had.....but this was never told to me, explained to me. Im thankful that they didnt have to install a morphine pump. Where does one go to get a good pain management doctor? This has really thrown me over the edge. I thought I had my spine issues under control. Now this. Anyone out there had this problem??
