I had an appt with PM a few days ago and had a complete meltdown in the office. I'm not a cryer but let me tell you I did a great job of it! LOL! I am just so tired of hurting all the time. I was taking Norco and it stopped working. I also take Lyrica, Naproxen, Flexeril. The Dr put me on a pain patch called Butran or Butrans. I don't have it yet because the pharmacy had to order it. He told me that he understands that I'm in pain because my body creates a lot of scar tissue at a fast rate. He told me he knows how I feel about another surgery but eventually I'll have to see nuero again. I'm not sure I'd be a candidtate for another laminectomy because they've already taken so much bone to allow for scar tissue that it's caused an unstable spine. Anyway, I'm picking up the patches Monday and was just wondering if anyone else has used them and how they worked for them.
