Couldn't find what you looking for?


I had an operation for three broken bones in my neck. After surgery me Dr. said I had floating bone chips near my spine that he was afraid to try and remove. I am in constant pain and using oxycontin for pain which causes me to have stomach problems every two or three weeks. Is there any laser surgery or any other type of surgery that would give me any relief? Each time a chip hits my spine it feels like an electrical shock. Any advice would be appreciated.


My husband is in the ICU after a fall down a stairwell.  When I asked the doctor about the extent of the damage (skull fracture and broken leg were the first mentioned), he mentioned small bone chips from the spine, which he said would cause no problems.  I asked about pain, and he said, no, not even pain. I am amazed and dubious.
