I know its been awhile since I've posted. I've been busy at work and by the time I get home, well the puter is the last thing on my mind. I've missed everyone, ya'll have always been so nice.
I have a question, I had a rupture of L3 and L4 and had surgury in April of 2007. Have no reason for it to have done the exposion, lol, but it did. I only saw the doctor from April til August and then went back to the other doctor I was seeing. THe guy who did the surgery, acts like there is no way I should still be in pain and that was that. Yea I know... real nice. rackum-frackum-brackum....grrrrrrrr... Ok.. sorry gets to me still. At the time of the surgery I did not have insurance and I think he did it more of a favor for my father in law than for me, but any who.... My question is this. I still hurt.. 24/7 never stops, pain meds just dull it so I can work, soma's just make me sleepy, they even put me on depression meds, to help with the pain. (YEA right... you just think its in my HEAD) anti-flamatory... nothing stops it... I've had pain now since 2005 when it first did the flop til now daily... before that... almost daily for 10 years... didnt do anything then, dont know why.. guess no money and/or insurance.
Ok, sorry getting off track. Would a nerve block do me any good. Would it make it worse? I have an appointment in April to see a new doctor. I finally got insurance, but I have to wait a year for existing conditions, but I can start making plans for when the year is up. I just want to go in and know what the heck I'm talking about to him. My brothers go to him and have for years and really like him. He seems to really care and take good care of them, so I feel like he's going to be a good doctor. I just dont know alot about nerve block.. but the way things are going... I'm not sure if anything else will do. I've had 3 MRI's the last was in August of 07 and it didnt show anything but some scar tissue.
I have a friend, her mother in law had the same pain I had and they fused her and it took a little longer for her to get over it but she is pain-free. Lord those words look nice. I'm wondering now if he should have fused mine. I'm just at a loss, I hate taking meds, but if I dont take something the pain just about knocks me off my feet and out of my head.
Thanks for letting me vent LOL... ya'll are the best!!!!!!!!!!!
