Spinal Cord Disorders Message Board


Spinal Cord Disorders Board Index


Had The Mri Done At The End Of September 2007 , Showed Herniation At C4/5 With Cord Flattening , And Showed A Small Bulge At C5/6 . My Spinal Cord Was Almost Completely Pinched Off . The Only Thing The Doc Did After Surgery Was Xrays . I Don't Even Have Restrictions On Lifting Or Activity , But I Cannot Go To Work . He Never Had Me Wear A Collar . The Insicion Healed Good , My Vocal Cords Healed Fast , But I Barely Have Use Of My Right Arm Because The Pain Is So Bad . I Have Had Severe Spasms In My Back , Neck , And Arms Post Surgery , I Still Have Problems With My Balance , And Now The Severe Haedaches I Had Before Surgery Have Come Back Two Fold . He Has Me On Elavil At Night , And Darvocet During The Day (i Requested The Darvocet,because I Was Taking So Much Lortab I Was Scared Of Addiction)
My Real Prob Now Is When I Tell Him I Hurt Or Something Doesn't Work Right All He Says Is The Nerves Are Trying To Wake Up . I Understand That , But I Thought If I Asked For A Test I Had The Right To Get It . At Least That's What My Lawyer Said . I Think I Know When Something Isn't Right Since I Am The One Going Through It , And The Doc Has Never Had This Before . Also , I Just Found Out He Came Out Of Residency In July Of 2007 . I Was One Of His First Patients As A Full Specialist . That Was A Little Unnerving . I Am Already Doing All The Neck Excercises From Pt Before Surgery , So I Don't Know What This Round Of Pt Is Going To Accomplish . Thanks For Listening , Noone Else Understands , They Think Hey You Had Surgery So You Must Be Fine Now . I Am Far From Being Fine ...........
