    Default My pain is enormous

    My back and my legs are in agony. No matter how or where I sit my back is constantly throbbing. I am waiting for the call from my Pain Management clinic to set up back injections. My pain doc says that there is very little chance of them working but I will try almost anything at this point. He also is trying to help me get aqua therapy but I am pretty sure that the insurance will turn it down.

    I don't dare go to the ER. Thank God for the MMJ because that is the only thing that makes it all tolerable. That keeps me from tears all day long. I do have my break downs now and then everyday but I know there is something out there that will help. Any out there who have had Ablations done on their lower back? Can it cause nerve damage in my legs and feet?

    Houghchrist - having talked to a number of People who have had back surgery - I would use one word regarding abalations ( or any other procedure) -DON'T - My understanding is back surgery has an 80% FAILURE rate - do a search on failed back surgery syndrome - even though my legs and feet are either numb or screaming at me (hard to say which is worse) I will not let them cut on me. Good luck and I hope the injections help.
    Hope this finds you as well as you can be.
