... have been to several specialists and had epidural injections, chiropractic care and accupunture. I spend most days in bed and am depressed. I can go on. My question is has anyone had revision surgery? I'm told that this is a complicated surgery. I would need a vascular surgeon nearby and wind up in a trauma unit afterwards tgere is a 5o/50 chance of needing rehabilitation. I would also need 3 seperate surgeries. I was also told this is extremely painful! The surgeon would go through my abdomen, my side and finally my back. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband. I don't think I can stand this pain much longer but the pain management dr tells me to accept it. Does anyone have an answer for me who is undergoing the same dreadful situation? I want my life back! Thanks!
1. Do not have any more surgery done, especially the one you're considering, it sounds as though it's a huge risk. 2. Find a new Dr., if he really said "accept it" he's basically done with you or is afraid to write for pain meds due to the nationwide war on Doctors by the DEA who cannot control the abuse.
