I ask a question formerly, and I believe Dr Norman Ashraf answered me. I did see the ortho as you suggested about the tail bone extraction. He ran a couple of X-rays and the results were unremarkable. He sent me for an MRI, The MRI report too, appears of no value. I will be sending the disc for the physician to evaluate.

All physicians agree that I have several things going on, but no one has voiced a treatment plan. They all just shake their heads, and I leave still in pain and wondering whether anyone will be able to help in any constructive way. Of course I do not want any type surgery, but noone has mentioned that. (thankfully)

I am taking Oxycodone 15mg when needed up to three times and 10mg Methodone usually once or twice day. I take a couple of Aleve (after eating) and take Neurontin and Amitriptiline at night. If I didn't have these meds I don't think I would ever sleep or have enough relief during the day to keep my head above water.

If you have any type suggestion for me, please let me know.
