I dont have a clue where to go or who to ask or even what to say anymore..

After going to my Doctor yesterday to check why I had a bulge sticking out beside where they took my harware from my 98 lumbar fusion..
.
I was worried that after hearing a pop-of course I thought something had happened to the fusion..I did'nt think it was bad because there was not too much pain from the scar down...But from the scar up to my neck and into my cervical fussion it was and is completly locked down.
I also had bone spurs taken off my right shoulder this year--everything is locked on the right side--I mean the muscles are hard as rocks and myshoulders are way uneven and stabbing pain and if I take a deep breath it hurts worse and can feell massive consrtiction around my chest.

The harware came out Dec. 15th-- went great -he gave me 30 percocets and the refilled them once for 30.--so thats what 23 days..I totally did not abuse them. .since I have been home I have alot of trouble with the scar up to my neck
I have asked my doc about this he has Mri's on my whole body--This was not the doc that did my surgerys but I been seeing him for 3 years -and I thought he was ok because he told me to wait on the lumbar removal and try Injections in cervical for that pain which I did acouple of months ago- and each time they had to tie my feet down because my legs fling up which I could not control--it was'nt a pain thing...What ever is wrong with me is something to do with all that...
Anyway-he said it was just scar tissue building in the lumbar and was that protruding out and would be fine ..I say what about the pain in my neck down to the scar --he just kind of made a weird face and said I dont really know what that is ...D.A. Doctor... I say well you told me 3 years ago you thought the other guy did the wrong cervical disc ( which the whole time for 10 years i have been saying THorasic) I think since they wont operate on that they did'nt want to loose out on a surgery---I have blocked that way of thinking for years and been totally positive...
Then I say well the good part is The perocets are the only thing that have helped me since any of the surgerys and they calm all the other cervical and my thorasic down.--a while ago I came to this sight here and spoke about I did'nt use any meds because they did'nt work...afew people expained I should not rule that out so I became a little more open minded about it...
After this harware removal he said Loritabs --I said no thanks they make me weird and have never worked and I dont like the way they make me act around my 4 and 6 year old..So he says try pecocet.
I was so proud that they worked -they did'nt change my mood--I took them at nite and only in the day when I would be home all day...
I tried not taking them a week ago.. made it 3 days then my lumbar popped and my upper back locked up --I took 1 pill and within an hour it had calmed down---It worked better than anything that muscle relaxers have never touched..
So when I asked him for more percocets ..he said he could'nt do it...I said why --he just shrugged...and said he could give a P.M guy---I'm like what are you talking about--what about the knife in my back and my cervical....
He said try massages.....I just left...pretty upset ...
I got home upset - mad and confused ..so I called back and got the nurse..
She said he does'nt like to give to much meds .....Like yeah right--check my records from both docs -I did not take the meds and have suffered and now your telling me this?

She said Yes.....

So I QUITT---guess i'll just keep going -trying to help my wife and kids --no other family lives here---If we miss alick were in financial trouble....
Must be nice to rule the Meds and get a big ole Pay check..
I cant even start a new Doc because I dont have deductible money and all that.. Nice Huh ? Pray and Move on?

I am NEVER depressed and NOw I am...and scared.Willis
