I had actually gotten to the point where I flat out told my neurosurgeon that unless he was plannong on paying my bills, he was going to leave my back alone. As CP patients we are always in search of something, anything, that will stop our pain. You're right, how many failed back surgeries is enough?
cervical fusion 2006
L4-5 surgery with cages, plates, and screws in 2005
MEDS: Fentanyl patch, Norco, Celexa, trazodone, and baclofen
To handle yourself, use your head...to handle others, use your heart
I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.
