Over the past six years, I hear and see my mother's tears of pain in her upper thigh on the side and she cannot walk good because her leg gives out on her. She has been going to doctors for over 15 years and she has prove with medical paperwork. She has had one back surgery and she was ok for awhile! She has been the therapy on and off! She has been given strong pain pills but she sleeps and she doesn't like not being able to do anything!! Now, a doctor got her in therapy for 4 weeks, but the people in therapy says that her back is really swollen so they cannot do what they are told. Asked my mother to put ice pack on her back to get the swollen down, she is doing it! Now they told her, they are only going to see her for 2 weeks!! Something is wrong! She wants to know what is wrong with her and what could be done!! Every time I talk to her, she is crying about the pain and she cannot do anything, plus these doctors do not know what is going on but they want to dose her up with pain killers!!! I think that this is 4 certified medical doctors but they do not know what is going on!!!! One doctor stated to her the it is her back and the surgery she had needed to go down not up her back!!! The doctor that did the back surgery stated that he is just a surgeon!! I want my mom to feel better!!!! Please help her and me too!! She is not faking!!!View Thread
