2 days ago · Saying goodbye to chronic pain, thanks to nerve stimulation in Adult Pain Medicine

I’m new to this group. I suffer from failed back surgery. My legs hurt so bad, nerve pain is severe . I do brace myself for the minute by minute day. I’m scheduled for the temporary pain stimulator in April. I’m out of options but more pain pills and Lyrica which makes me terribly dizzy.

I had no side effects. I got a shot every six months.
It did me no good. My Dexascan is worse. 6 years on Prolia. The Drs are testing me to why I don’t absorb vitamin D. Best of luck.

I’m at Mayo now. I saw my Drs yesterday. My hardware didn’t hold my surgery was Nov 14th this year. My bone Dex scan doesn’t be look good. My bones are soft. I have been on Prolia shots for 5 years and taking Vitamin D 50,000 mg a week. That did absolutely nothing for me. Today I will see an encronoligist about my bones. Apparently there is better treatment that they will give me than what I’ve been doing. I’m in pain 24/7 my back, upper legs, and hips. This goes with soft bones called Ostereomalacia. They hardware will remain in my back. The titanium disk slipped back where it was. Sorry this is so long. It’s hard for people to understand what I’m going through. They think a walk will help. I am walking myself all over Mayo just really slow. I’m determined not to be pushed around. Thanks for listening.

I am in Mn now at Mayo. It’s worth everything to come here. In 2015 they changed my life with a brain surgery. I’m here for something else but I know I will get the best care in the nation here.

I would definitely see another Dr. I stayed with a Dr I liked for years only to find out later he did me no good at all. Sorry to hear your going through this.

I have been getting prolia shots for 5 years along
with 50,000 mg of vitamin D a week. My DexScan is worse! It’s now -3.1 and they can’t revise my surgery because my bones are too soft. I had the surgery Nov 14th it has failed because my bones aren’t strong enough to hold hardware. So 5 years of Prolia did me no good at all.
