Need help/answers quick for 4 yr old son

Postby tchappell » Tue Jun 08, 2010 7:44 pm

HELP! Please! My four year old son had his spinal cord detethered on the 2nd and was released yesterday. He is complaining of pain in his right pain and shaking because he is in so much pain! They sent him home with no pain meds other than tylenol and motrin. I had them call him in some tynlenol w/ codiene and waiting for that to take effect. But I am so nervous and scared. Is this normal? I talked to the doctor on call and he said he thinks it is drying blood that is irratiting the nerves. They could call him in some steriods but dont want to at this point...WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???? what do i do? The hospital was in OKC and we are now back home in lawton??? No ped. Neurosurgeons here locally.
