To be honest i wish i never had the surgery. The second surgery i had no choice the spacers where hitting my spinal cord. They where sticking 1/8 of inch or more out if they slide out any more i would be paralyzed. And the doc acts like its nothing. The spacers moved becuase it was a new spacer being used and i was guinea pig my lawyer said as long as he fixs his mistake i cant even sue his A$$ this world is so messd up

Very sorry about the continued issues ... & the treatment you are receiving from medical professionals. Are you able to seek another opinion ... or choose other doctors? Thoughts/prayers continuing, of course....

Medicine is like every other profession -- there are people who are good at it and there are people who suck. Finding a good doctor is like finding a good mechanic, lawyer, etc. You may have to go through a few before you find a good one. Time for a second opinion.

And here lies my problem this doctor was my second opinion i had a slow doctor before him this doc is considered one of the best and I feel that he was just trying to protect himself not worried about his patients my physical therapist was shocked she asked for mri to help clear things up he did xray and nothing more how can u see nerves possible stuck in scar from xray you cant am scared that this going to be my life consumed by pain stuck taking pills everyday

Then it's time for a third opinion.

CSB: My mother-in-law went to a highly respected cardiologist, who put her on some drug as a 'preventative measure'.  It made her sick all the time.  After my wife went with her and confronted him about it, he told her the benefits of taking it were actually negligible, but if she refused to take it, he would no longer treat her.  So she found a different cardiologist who told her her heart was in fine shape.  Turned out later that the drug the previous guy had her on was one that the drug companies give huge kickbacks to doctors for prescribing.

Bottom line -- they're not all good, and worse, they're not all ethical.  Keep looking until you find someone who's willing to actually investigate instead of just shrug their shoulders.

Cant get 3rd option because this is workman's comp u get 2 opinions are two doctors that is it they don't give you options have a third look at I had almost $400,000 for the surgery this Dr made playing money off of me with every damn doctors visit didn't even let you he won't prescribe pills I have to go to a pain clinic for that I guess its just getting old trying to deal with all this I mean in the long run this will give me more money through workmans comp settlement than anything else just means I wull be more disabled

It's too bad a 3rd opinion is not an option for you.....  I count myself lucky in terms of doctors, for the most part.  The Medicaid-appointed doctors aren't so great, but the ones I had previously, along with my cardiologist who kept me despite the Medicaid plan, have all been very good.  Thoughts/prayers continuing......
