Customer Question
I have physical pain. Suboxone...
I have physical pain. Suboxone is great for withdrawls but it is not helping my back pain. What can I ask my doctor about for my physical pain from back surgery? I wasin a car wreck sat. and now I'm in serious pain. TheER couldn't give me anything but anti inflamatory med. It isn't helping at all. I have staples in my head and cuts and bruises all over. There should be something to help all this pain.

Hello,
The back surgeries are one of the major surgeries.You should ask from your doctor about following-
1.Was your sine opened ?
2.Is it fixed with plates or screws?
3.Any supportive bone grafting for healing was done or not?
4.The precautions do be taken in future?
5.The movements which you can have & should avoid?

Hope this will help you.

my spin was open. It was fixed with plates and screws and I had bone graft. It hurts more now then before the surgery. My problem is I can't get the proper meds that will help out when taken normally. I am about to give up and I think I will forever be in pain. Thedoctor that did my surgery had told me that I also had a verterbre that was slipped and could have severed my spinal cord. I am 44 years old and pray that I can get some releif.
Doctor: Dr.tiwari, Doctor replied 8 years ago
it was a major operation.You should not worry the pain after the spine surgery generally remain there for few months but it gradually decreases.You should attend a good physical therapist.He may help you by teaching some exercises,hydrotherapy & give you relief by TENS therapy.Also there are some advanced drugs like carbmazepine which can be used by your pain management doctor.

Hope this will help you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
