... want to another one on top of the two that are fussed. I'm tacking 6 Narco 10/325 but was just cut off by my doctor and said go see a pain specialist. I'm not sure what to do. I'm in pain all the time and have a sales job running my own business. So if the surgery goes bad I can't be stuck at home ! Anyway, any advise would be great
I'd go to see the pain specialist. There may be procedures they can do to treat the pain if the need for surgery isn't severe. Fusions tend to cause more problems above and below where they are fused. Be sure to get a second opinion before surgery - it can be tough deciding what to do. But with going to a pain specialist they can help you get to good physical therapy before and after surgery, if needed. Might as well go and see the docs that treat pain all the time!

I am in exactly the same situation, I had fusion also same place 5 and 6. I just had another MRI and have to go see the surgeon again, I fear they are going to say I need another surgery I am also on pain meds, what are you doing to get refill? I would not recommend just stopping them cold turkey. I also am debating if I want another surgery, I don't understand how they don't see this when they review the results when they decide to do the first and second surgery. this is what I don't get sometimes I swear they just are money making machines. at one point it was debilitating my legs where giving out and numbness in my hands, legs etc... I am going to add you as a friend and we will try to help each other. Have Family do they or friends know your taking the meds? will let you know what my doctor says when I go to see him. the best...
