Saw Neuro yesterday.2 weeks since MD on L-5. He says I'm doing well. I told him the pain in my leg seems to be gone but It comes and goes at times. He says that's normal at this point. What's concerning me is my back is killing me. They found what they termed an "Anomoly: in my back. I guess it;s nerves and veins sort of attached to the spine,so they were not able to biopsy it..or actually didn't want to take the chance. I asked him if it could possibly be cancer and he thought not at this point. However,he wants to do more imaging in the upcoming months to "follow" it. If it gets larger in size than I guess they will eventually remove it surgically.This Neuro is somewhat conservative.....he said that himself to me. I am a bit disappointed because I do not want to have any more surgeries. I think while he was in there he should have done whatever it was that was needed then.
He's sending me to P/T and gave me Oxycontin 20mg 2x day and Oxycodone hcl 5 mg 6 x day for pain....at times it's excruciating,especially if I have to sit in a chair for long. Anyone ever have anything like this?
