At the Dr. appointment yesterday, he infomed me that in three months time...if the pain didnt let up, we'd look at a spinal cord stimulator.
My pain management DR. already told me that there was nothing more he could do, just keep me somewhat comfortable which isnt happening. I'm still on Morhpine twice a day and well as Percocet 10's every 4 hours as needed and Zanaflex.
In three months time that will be my 6 month mark. I'm a little scared of having a SCS implanted as I hate the thought of another surgery but I just want this pain under control.
Anyway, does anyone else have a hard time laying on your hips and buttocks? Mine kill me after about 10-15 minutes and I have to turn all the time in bed. The surgeon gave me lidocane patches to try but as far as I know arent the just pretty much a topical pain relief thing? They dont seem to do anything.
