Hi my name is Amanda I had the Harrington rod fusion when I was 12 in 1992. I had my first son in 2004 and began having back pain pretty much all the time. I get pain in my back so severe it brings me to tears and it’s like a migraine it makes me throw up to relieve a little pressure but it last for days. I have major side/rib pain and sternum pain along with it that is unbearable. I had my second child 4 mths ago and it’s now so bad my back swells up on the upper right side and causes leg and arm numbness and pain it’s the most awful pain I get no relief. I went to the dr and was put on hydrocodone it takes the edge off but for only a short time. I have 2 children who need me and I know something is not right!! It hurts to walk to sit to sleep. Can u please guide me in what direction to take and please let me know if u think my rod has broken or what all these symptoms could possibly mean.
Please help!! Thanks for your time!
