I am new here, but I am needing advice or just a shoulder, I have like I said in my entry had three back surgeries, last one a fusion of disc l-5, s-1 now the rod is coming out. It is extremely tender to touch, and right now the Dr wants to do surgery on me to remove the rods, meantime my husband has to have a pacemaker change, major hospital bill, he wants me to have this taken care of asap, due to the constant crying, I am sure alot of you can understand that. Have any of you had this happen? and if so, what do you do for the pain, I am now strapped to a TENS unit daily and use it frequently and take pain meds with an occasional need for muscle relaxers.. Advice??
