    Hey Doug, hope you had a good time in Myrtle Beach. I'm originally from Wilmington NC so used to go there a lot. Of course it's changed a lot since I was a teenager. I'm doing well - working alot which I guess is a good thing. How are you doing? I'm due for a colonoscopy but keeping putting it off - have you had one? Let me know if you are going to be in Florida next year.

    Hey Doug, saw your visitor message. I guess this is the right way to reply. I'm getting over a round with a herniated disk. Couldn't walk for a few weeks - was using my wheelchair. Hope you are doing well. Has your wife fully recovered?

    Hi! We have Black Australorp hens. We got four of them last year, for the eggs and also for the kids. They're like big not so bright pets that poop everywhere... we finally had to confine them to their coop because were getting so tired of cleaning up the poop. How many chickens do you have? Do you eat them, or use them for the eggs?

    It's not doing anything at the moment, but I guess it's supposed to get stormy throughout the day with chances of tornadoes later on today/tonight. I'm thankful we have a basement but no stairlift yet, so that means Ryan has to butt bump down which he's only done 3 times so far. Hope you don't get hit with more nasty weather!

    Hi, Thanks for your reply. I was injured in 1994 in a car accident. Ejected about 70 feet and broke my back at T-10. It's been really smooth for the 16 years post injury until I got a sore on my ischium. It is now about 1 cm wide and 8 cm deep. Flap surgery on the 7th.

    Glad your wife is better, and i REALLY get doctors missing things.
    I was diagnosed complete as soon as i was flown into the trauma, my spine was pulled over to the side with a huge lump, i needed immediate surgery, was put at the back of the line because "someone" decided i was toast. I was hugged by family and friends (should not have been touched) moved, layed on my back, for 30 hours! No ice to the site, no hypothermia, no care until the neurosurgeon came back from his dinner meeting and golf game next day.
    wished i could make a change!!! This is why i have not seen a neuro in 4-5 years! I am going to try Arndog's doctor, just called today, am waiting for a return call to set up a appt.
    Maybe i do have nocioceptive pain, would it not be awesome to get some relief, anything, to come down from a 10 or more like 20 down to a 15 or so. (: Why do you have such foot pain, hypersensitivity?

    Hey Duge, I hope your feeling better. I am still having krazy pain in my back, hips and leg area. I was hurt on my L1 and there are parts of my hips, butt, left leg down to my knee that are numb. My pain feel like ive been beaten up and some burning on my left leg. I have been taking Oxycodone, and taking too many pills - i am very constipated. I have tried gabapetin and lyrica when I was in the hospital but stopped it out of fear of getting hooked. well, well I think I am hooked on these freggin pain killers. I cant even sleep without taking them. What do you think I should do?

    My husband was flown to U of L, too. Thankfully for him, he had a good experience there. They saved his life (a few times). He was there for 5 weeks and then inpatient at Frazier in Louisville for 6 weeks. He still goes to Frazier for outpatient therapy now and will probably be going to Nortons to have his hardware removed from his spine.

    hey got your msg...nothing much...just had surgery on my leg and had some of the hardware removed...feeling much better now that the four screws and plate is gone...they left one screw saying it is a "support" screw...???...yeah right...as long as it doesn't bother me like the plate and such...I'll be happy...hope you're doing well...haven't gone through this website yet to play catch-up...sorry, I don't know nothing about what's going on here...

    Hey Doug. I haven't tried Facebook - my wife does it all of the time. Do you find a lot of SCI stuff there or just keep up with friends? Have you seen the posts by Dr Xiao on carecure - he sure makes the nerve rerouting sound promising.

    Right now it looks like the oil is going to hit the east coast of FL and not us. It really is a disaster - with no end in sight.

    part 3: I have been feeling "better" lately and last MRI showed the lesions is shrinking. So, it's a wait and see game for now. Another MRI in 5 months.
    I've been trying to read as much of these forums as I can, but damn, some of it just breaks my heart, and makes me feel guilty that I was freaking out about what's wrong with me, where in reality, I should be thankful.
    Wow, sorry for being so long winded, but thanks for listening/reading. This shit is very scary.

    part 2: Sent me for an MRI and low and behold - there it was. Nice sized lesion in C2-3 area. I had an LP (spinal tap) that turned out well, but back in the tube for 2 more MRI's - brain and thorasic. Nothing there. Ok, I do have a brain, but no other lesions. An EMG showed demylenation on my left side. My left ankle is very "slow" but doesn't bother me too much I can deal with that. I have TM, but was/am extremely lucky. I am fully mobile. My left chest and shoulder area constantly feels like I have bugs crawling and then every few minutes, it will feel like someone stuck me with an ice pick. That sucks. Some spasming in my left shoulder and arm, but that only happens about once or twice a day. My right side is hyper-sensitive to cold, left side loves it. Talk about frayed wires.

    Part 1: Came from an effin' cold and me not resting, we think. I got "sick" in July 2008, and let it go. Was down in Evanville 1st week in August and felt pretty good. Then I got really bad, I went to 2 GP's who helped less than my dog did. After a severe reaction to antibiotics, developing tremors and just not feeling well, I went to the ER on Sept. 1, 2208. By that time, I had parathesia in both hands and both feet. I thought I was going to die. Any who, the ER did a CT, EKG, chest X-ray and sent me home with a "see a neurologist." Luckily, I hooked up with a great team in Merrillville who are associated with the Cleveland Clinic. They believed me.

    You can see extra "bony" material (calcium deposits) between the vertebrate and the spinal cord. Especially, in the "yellow" one, you can see where the bony material is compressing the cord. My SCI was caused by a fractured calcium deposit at T8-9.

    Duge,

    I am sorry that I haven't been checking my visitor messages every day. In my opinion, fentanyl does affect neuropathic pain, such as the "burning" that you describe. So, since you have reduced the Fentanyl, it would not be surprising if you get back some neuropathic pain. I have not heard that Fentanyl affects spasms but the spasms may be a result of the neuropathic pain. On the other hand, Lyrica should reduce spasms. So, I am not sure what is going on.

    Wise.
