Hello all, it has been quite sometime since I have been back here. Since that time Past April, I have had a surgery to remove the metal rods and screws from my back and have it re-fused. Then in Dec. this last year I had to have my SI joint fused. through the whole ordeal my surgeon was great about
helping with pain control/meds. I even weened off them before my last surgery. My SI has healed with no pain now. But,....here is the big problem, My lower spine around the L5-S1 on both sides I am having extreme pain. I have been religious with exercise, massages and pool therapy. I have even been off the pain meds for a month! I went to my surgeon for this THREE times, all in two weeks. and this is what he said "... everything looks good, I can't see any reason for the pain..here is what I want you to do is say to yourself 100 times a day that I am well, and I am getting better..."
My jaws just hit the floor! Since I have been in really extreme pain!
I went to the ER this past weekend because it was bad, the docs in there said to get a new doc for pain management.......anyone out there ever had this happen to them
Sorry so long, peace COLERG
