Messed up back procedure

Sep 21, 2015 9:36 AM

Ok so here's the thing I had my back procedure a week ago today and by all means it should have taken affect like it has in the past. Well the last 5 days it's been pure he** on me. My back hurts more and when I go to stand I get dizzy and lightheaded and my back locks up and it takes forever to stand back up. Now the dizzy and lightheadedness could be related to my Nerocardiogenic syncope. I also get my left arm falling asleep on me. I am beginning to think that maybe my doctor missed the nerve he was going after and hit the wrong one. Either way I am not a happy camper. I just don't know what to do. I have a follow up with him on the 16th of October.

Moparmom, I don't think that you should be made to wait until October. I would call and let them know that something is wrong. You know your body and it very well could be he missed the nerve he was going for. It could also be that he irritated a nerve that he didn't mean to touch. I hope that you get the answers you need. I have been through surgery where I was praying for relief and didn't get it. It's very distressing because the surgery alone is traumatizing and then to not have the outcome you expected is worse. Sending you gentle hugs and hope that the doctor can help you. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Thank You Alwayz, I am going to be calling his office today as soon as I figure out what office he is at today. The pain has usually calmed down a week afterwards but it has only gotten worse. I pray that your flair goes away soon, prayers and gental hugs to you too. Have a pain free day as much as possible.🙏

No problem, Moparmom!! You hang in there and I'll be thinking of you. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Very frustrated! Called all 3 doctors locations and get " he's not in"! I said when will he be in?! All will do is take my name and #. I am hurting worse today then I did last week. I didn't help I overdid it last 2 days, but I have 3 kids and an Elderly Aunt I take care of and my special needs kid and I cannot put their life on hold because the pain is trying to put mine on hold. I am not giving up! That office is going to here from me on Monday morning first thing! I can't hardly get out of bed today because of it!

Moparmom, I'm sorry to hear about what you're going through. Sadly many docs here take Friday off, to play golf! I hope you can get through to him Monday. If not just show up at his office on Tuesday to show him how much pain you're in. I oppose you can get some rest. You're in my thoughts and prayers. 🌼

Thank You Flappys, I am not going to give up, I hate living like this! I push myself past my limits because of the family I have to take care of.
