How Effective Are Pain Killers And Surgery for Back Pain?

How Effective Are Pain Killers And Surgery for Back Pain?

PAIN KILLERS / ANALGESIA

Painkillers-or analgesics-are drugs that work by interfering with the pain transmission process. Although the stronger analgesics are only available by prescription from your doctor, many of the pain killers that you can obtain over-the-counter from your pharmacist can be effective if taken properly.

Remember to always ask your pharmacist for advice and never exceed the stated dose.

BACK SURGERY 

Surgery is only appropriate for a very small proportion of patients with back pain. Rarely, back pain may worsen to the extent that other functions or organs of the body (e.g. the bladder or the bowel) are affected. In the most severe cases, some patients may become paralyzed. Your doctor will use surgery as a last resort, when all other attempts at relieving your pain have failed.

If you have been referred for back surgery, you should carefully consider your options before consenting. As well as requiring many weeks of convalescence,success is never guaranteed and even after surgery the pain may not go away completely. It is important that you discuss the surgery and all the possible outcomes with your surgeon.

Useful questions to ask your back pain specialist include: 

  • What kind of operation are you proposing? 

  • What are the chances of  good pain relief if i opt to have the surgery? 

  • What will happen if i decide not to have the surgery? 

  • What are my other options besides surgery? 

  • What are the possible risks associated with this kind of surgery? 

  • How long will i be in hospital for? 

  • Will i have to undergo physiotherapy after the operation? 

  • How long will i have to  stay off work? 

  • How long after the  surgery will my life return to normal? 

There areTWO general types of back surgery:·        

  • Discectomy- involves the removal of part of a vertebral disc to reduce pressure on a nerve root.     

  • Stabilization/fusion- involves fixing together two or more adjacent vertebrae with bone taken from elsewhere in the body.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your persistent back pain could be due to you driving a 2 wheeler since a long time. Can you tell me whether your leg pain you feel is radiating from your lower back region or is it an independent entity? also do you feel any numbness, weakness, paresthesias in legs as well? have you got some investigations like x rays of your back and blood tests like vitamin d tests for leg pain etc? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
