Chronic Back Pain for Years

Posted by jlfisher56 @jlfisher56, May 2, 2017

6 back surgeries (extensive cervical and lumbar fusions) with neurological complications. Left with chronic pain. Accident happened in Nursing career 1992 and worked with first fusions until 1999 (failed fusions). At my age, and as a former nurse educator, I never wanted to had to rely on medication/s for the severe pain. Having thoroughly exhausted exploring sites using non-pharmaceutical methods, using psychological methods, biofeedback, trying to accept my limitations, i.e., I still believe somewhere…out there…is hope. The strong medicine has caused gastroparesis, further complicating my health problems. They are too numerous to write and I will not focus on them. I am looking for “help” and guidance. If I can be of assistance to anyone throughout their trials, (perhaps similar to some of what I have gone through), I will.

Hi All!
I want to ask everyone a favor.
Tomorrow I go in for surgery on L4/5.
I am having what is called a X-LIFT.
Please keep me and my surgical team in your prayers.

Thank you!

@lioness I am very happy to live here in the northeast, about 55 miles from Boston and now go there for almost everything, but I had no idea that in SoCal it wasn't good. My son's gf was a nurse at UCLA Medical Center before they recently moved to Denver and she always said how wonderful it was there. She had been around because before settling there she was a traveling nurse. I know it's not quite as high up in the ratings as some of the Boston hospitals but it is pretty high so I just assumed that other hospitals out there would be too. Of course Cedars is supposed to be great too.
