Good evening everyone!!
I am not new here I have been on here for about 3 years. I apologise right now for complaining!
Over the last two months My pain has increased. I had a level one fusion with hardware in July on 2008. I have had many ingestion's, medications, PT, chrio., at home tens unit.
My meds that I am taking right now is 800mg Gabapentin 3x a day, Methocarbam 500 mg, 3x a day, and lortab 10mg 2x a day. right now nothing is helping with the pain. I almost fell like I did before first surgery. I had the hardware removed in Dec of 2009. I hate taking the pain meds due to the fact that I have 3 kids that I still need to take care of. The oldest of my kids is 14 so i do have her to help with the other kids.
I need help on what to do. or any thing that you can suggest on helping with the pain!! I am seeing a Pain Specialist and cause of the injections did not help he is not sure on what to do now. when I go in he just pushes on my back to see where the pain is and then just gives me meds and sends me home. I am trying to just get the pain under control. So and suggestions would be great!! I am open to any thing!!
