Cont...NEXT, I need surgery to remove the excess skin on my eyelids which makes it difficult for me to see. After that I'm having an abdominalplasty due to having a bad constant yeast infection below the large blob of my belly. Did I mention that both of my knees need replacement?? Sometime during this time I am supposed to go to Delaware with my girlfriends husband to bury her ashes by their vacation home (trailer) near Bethany Beach which is what she wanted. When I get a few minutes in all of this madness I will write to the group to let you know about my Adhesive Arach, when it started and why plus all of my other diagnoses.
cont..He has added MSIR to take on top of the Fentanyl (1200's) for the new additional pain. I also get 55micrograms of Sufentanil/Baclofen/Bupivicaine daily in my pump. I also have anterior/posterior scolosis, not very common which makes lying flat impossible. In the meantime..my pump alarm finally started. I've been waiting for a long time now being as my pump is going on 8yrs in November (most last only 5 years like my first one). My Neurologist has scheduled me for emergency surgery this Monday the 13th. I just had to have a physical for this surgery yesterday and need to have another one on the 30th for my next surgery on the 22nd of October which is to have my last 5 rotten teeth removed and my jaw bone cut. Then I'll have surgery for new dentures, I want the snap in ones. Cont.
Hi All. Just wanted to let you know that I've been on an emotional roller coaster for the last month or so. My very best and only friend passed away less than 2 months ago. I'm going through a meltdown of emotions. New pain has started and my Neurologist increased my meds in my pump and has added an additional oral (MSIR) med to use with my fentanyl (1200) pops. He wants a new MRI but I can only do one sitting. The place I found won't do it because the maker of the pump (Medtronic) has never tested my particular pump model after an MRI. They've never tested the vertical magnetic field and my pump could possibly melt or do some other spectacular feat. So, a sitting one is no go. I cannot lie flat, my back would have to be broken for that to happen...;-]..cont.

Just a quick note to say, you are correct. You are not alone. And I know that we often feel that way. MedHelp has been such a haven for me. I hope you find it the same.
I'm glad you are with us!
No, I haven't actually seen the results myself, I'm getting ready to go to a bone and joint surgeon on the 25th of this month,he wants me to bring my MRIs and things...that would be a second opinion.I've heard two different people say(including a sciatica doc from NY) it might be piriformis syndrome.
