Welcome.

There is plenty of research here.

As far as flying, that is where your pain meds would come in handy, lot's of them :)

Tom B

Excellent point Tom! If my IP paid for the ADR in the US, I most definitely would have done here; God knows what the outcome might have been :eek2::eek2::eek2:

Good news

I think this is good news. You have enough info to make an educated decision. I wouldn't wait too long if auto-fusion is looming.

How long

Hi Lasse,

It has been one year when I finally can say I do feel better. If you are like the 95% of the rest of us, you will get better and worse many times in the following 12-18 months. I,...

Jim, it is your call. Don't forget that pain medicine is just masking the issue. Also, your nerves can get permanent damage after a while. I lived with left leg sciatica for 2 years, and although...

Percocet - oxicodone

My advice to you is to get off this drug ASAP. Getting off it is like going through agonizing death for 2 weeks. Tramadol may be similar to opiates, but it is two schedules lower than Oxi, and...

Sorry, forgot to add - Clavel will accept credit cards, and it is one payment. Bierstedt will only accept a wire transfer, and you have to make 2 of them.
