So my pain doctor today ..... After telling him that the minimal amount of pain medication I was on wasn't cutting it .. he said ... well what about SCS to which I replied that SCS is contraindicated in spinal cords with arachnoiditis. He said well then we can RFA your back L3-L5 .... explained to him that RFA may relieve some of the emerging nerve pain but will do nothing to repair the bone on bone status of my LS. They also want to fuse my entire cervical spine just for kicks. One thing the doctor said that caught my ear ..... He literally said "no increase in pain medication with procedures". Does that sound odd to any of you other brain surgeons out there?? Doesn't that sound like medical blackmail?? Things that make you go HHHmmmph!! Is there a lawyer in the house??
