.....I am an anesthesiology  and pain therapist....It seems to me that you have a root compression....I have seen that you have dad   4 surgical approach.
I think thah the therapy is unbalancet only towards pain an not for the "origin " of pain.
Pain is coming from radicular edema caused by a compression.
If you find an anestesiologist the main tharpy is to injecy in peridural space ( epidural injection) a cortisonic drug.

Good afternoon Porter,

Thanks for your message.

Here is the copy of the MRI report.
Therefore, like everything else in the Caribbean, how to be sure that the “local” person (in Tortola) did an accurate reading…

The pain medication is definitely too mild, the pain wakes me up at night then can not sleep.
-1 x Diclofenac Sodium 75 mg every 12 hours
-1 x Baclofen 10 mg every 8 hours
-1 x Tramadol hydrocholide 50 mg every 6 hours
-2 x Paracetamol 500 mg every 6 hours

A friend send me information from a medical web site called “up to date” and it seems all the treatments say “evidence of effectiveness are lacking” or “quality of evidence considered low”…

“local” doctors say it will resolved itself within 2 weeks (somehow I doubt)…
Would love to hear your feedback.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Good morning Eric,



Thanks so much for your message.

I actually posted by mistake this on the forum...



I am quite upset with the local doctor, that prescribe too
mild medication, the pain constantly wakes me up at night…


Anyway, I don’t know when I will arrive in St Martin,
being solo and in pain, I have to be more cautious than
usual.

It is possible that I leave on the 11 and arrive on the 12,
but not sure as I could wait for better weather too…



As always thanks so much…

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi Alexandre,

If you get to SXM before the 13th.

I have some stuff in my kit that will help.

I am also VERY friendly with a local pharmacist who

knows everyone on the Dutch side.

Good Luck,

Eric
