... management clinic may help.Any suggestions?
Im sorry about the pain,If you have tried all kinds of pain meds then pain management might be the way to go,maybe you should see another doc to make sure there is not a underlying cause for the pain, maybe something the doc missed and can be fixed and go from there,hope this helps,i pray for you to have a pain free day.
PM specialist should be able to control your pain. My husband is 1 week post-op from his 3rd cervical fusion. His fusion is C-2 through C-6. The hardware didn't fail, he had his neck fractured in a car accident. They did a totally different procedure and he feels great. That is a very painful area (right where the neck meets the shoulders) to have this surgery. I shattered my L1 and L-2 in an accident and also had this fusion. If the PM specialist isn't able to help, ask your surgeon for an evaluation. He may be able to do a different procedure such as the Harms Cage. I know the kind of pain you are in. A good PM doc should be able to get you feeling better. But please do a follow up with the surgeon who did the operation. Have him/her check the status of the hardware. You shouldn't be in this much pain if the surgery were successful. Even when you get your pain under control, please do a follow up with the surgeon.
Wish you well and no one HAS to deal with severe pain!
i feel for you, i also had 2 plates and fusion done in my neck to help with headaches from an auto accident 3 years before. goodthing surgury was 8-4-9 and my neck pain is 10x worse then my headaches ever were i lost the best job i ever had because after 6 months i wasnt and still 9 months later cannot hold up my head for more then 6 hrs with pain meds
