I am sending this message to every website I can and will continue to do so attempting to inform anyone thinking about these injections.
I have been suffering from Degeneratve Disc Diease for many years and because of this experience quite a lot of pain. I was referred to see a Pain Management Physician who after his prescription of Vicoden decided to offer me a quick fix, the Faucet Injections.
To make a very long story short I did have the procedure. Approximately 2 days after the injections I experienced so much pain in my lower back all I could do was lay in bed and if I got up for any reason I literally cried because I just couldnt handle it.
Of course I immediately went to see my "Pain Doctor" and told him what I was feeling. His reaction was strange in that he just kind of shrugged it off and said it would get better in time which it didnt.
I went to see another physician about 200 miles away that came highly recommended. I also brought him my recent MRI disc which he reviewed and he told me that the injections hit my Siatic Nerve and caused great damage. The initial injections were approximately 9 months ago and it seems like the pain is getting worse instead of better. My new physician told me that he could do a procedure that would be on an out-patient status where he would chip away the bone that is restricting the Siatic Nerve and that MAYBE the pain would be relieved. This is set for nect week.
I should have known better than to have the injections performed by the initial doctor but I was desperate and needed something.
My advise-----NEVER HAVE THE FAUCET INJECTIONS. You will regret it especially now that I have two seperate pains and it is getting worse!
Here in California I have one year to file a law suit and if the bone chip surgery does not work I will sue the first doctor. I have never filed any type of law suit in my 60 years but this guy has got to pay for what he did to me. It looks like I will be in GREAT PAIN the rest of my life and for what? His inexperience?
