    I had a two level fusion and discectomy back in October. I had to advocate so relentlessly to obtain a decent dose Valium since it works on bad spasms. I had just undergone major neck surgery. I know Drs have to be careful but it feels like there is an over correction where pain management is concerned.

    It’s really a sad state of affairs. I know I have to have more discs fixed. My neck is in advanced stages of arthritis.

    I’m not afraid of the pain. I’m afraid of the suffering.

    • You are so right. We see the pendulum swing too far in an over-reaction to a few bad decisions. Nobody considers the multitude of good decisions.

    • Hello @Clarissa-Shackelford and welcome to the Pain Resource community– I’m really glad you found us! It’s very understandable that you are worried about these things. We are here for you.
