Back Surgery Forum: How Can I Help YOU?

I've been around the block when it comes to back surgery.  I've had three in the last year.  If I do  not know the answer, I know where I can FIND the answer and I WILL help you.

Please post your questions or comments and I will get back with you asap!

Warmly,

Kristi aka:  Spiniequeen

For Christine1 if you are on work comp it can take a long time for anything to get approved . My specialist refferal took about two months and my operation took ten months and a lawyer to get approval for. If you are on work comp and dont have one already get a lawyer asap. No one knows whats its like to be in overwhelming pain till you are in it. I was left using moraphine and er trips for dilaudid while waiting on them for months. Is should be a crime.

alright, I have my first surgery coming up in a couple of weeks. They are going in and widening the spaces where the nerves come out to take some pressure off and hopefully help with the pain that I am having. First of all, I am terrified! I have never really had surgery before, I am worried about my blood pressure and my general anxiety disorder that was under some control is now out of control. With everything else going on in Aurora I am having some real issues and now surgery!! Aaaaahhhhh!! Should I wait til I am a little more "calm", should I just get it over with? If it doesn't work they are talking about doing a fusion next. I need more details on that too. Will it really help? How long, if it does? I have known people that it only is a temp fix and they are having back problems again!
