I will need lots of extra candles... . This is what I am talking about
http://www.petoftheday.com/talk/showthread.php?s=&threadid=81736&highlight=epidural

I didn't mention it, but my neck was getting worse for some time already. Now I am a point where it is unbearable again. Nothing helps, exept very strong painkillers (help a bit!) . My dad got operated a week ago, and I was not able to visit him before yesterday. My sister arrived too, and she brought about 7 meals for my parents, enough for the next week. Oh my, I felt so guilty because I was unable to do a similar thing. All I could bring was a bouquet of fresh flowers from our garden... . She didn't say much to me; I am afraid she doesn't get it why I cannot do more... :(

On Wednesday, I am going to the hospital again for another neck epidural. Maybe I will need more! Although I need help, I am so very much NOT looking forward to this :( . It was horrible last time, so.....:eek:
I shouldn't be here on my pc. But laying down doesn't take away the hurting, so here I am. I know that I need you all, PT-prayers are so powerful!!

sorry for venting.......:(

Lut, so sorry to hear that. We'll send you some prayers and keep all claws, paws and tails crossed for you... LOUD Louie will do the Wigglebutt Dance if it'll make you feel a little better. Hang in there.

I am so sorry for you. I hope they find something that helps.....

All the best for you.

I include a link. It is a back therapy that's not so well known: a kind of muscular training in a machine (called MedX) designed especially for people with back problems. The muscles that support the lower spine are strengthened and so are able to really give support.

http://www.ptsconline.com/equipment/MedX.html

Siegmar is doing that now. He has a slipped disk and has been treated conservatively (as they don't do surgery very often these times). He had ca. 8 sessions (will have another ten) and says that now he wakes up without back pain.

I have another co-worker, a lady between 55 and 60, who had back surgery last year (with a complicated condition). She also has continued with the MedX training and says she is so happy she found it.

It must be available somewhere in Belgium too.

Thank you for that link, Barbara! I never heard of that therapy before. It seems that it doesn't exist in Belgium, but I sent an e-mail to http://www.medxonline.com/ to check this :)

Ouch. That sound just dreadful. And the other time you had it wasn't long ago at all. Will you need ot have this procedure done reguarly? Isn't there an operation that could help - so you won't have to undergo this painful procedure every few months?

I'll light some candles for you! {{{HUGS}}}

Yes and no. It is rarely done because it is very dangerous. It is to close to all nerves that pass there, nerves that go to all parts of our body....:( .

Dear Lut, I just cannot tell you how upset I am to hear that you are in pain once again.

Lut, I'm so sorry you are in such pain. Best wishes for the epidural to work. I can sympathize with you, I have an epidural every four months otherwise I can't walk.
Prayers are going your way.

I hope that somewhere out there is a solution to your pain. I can't imagine what you must endure.

You are such a sweet person. I'm one of the ones who has the honor of being reminded of your generosity everytime I put on my PT apron at home:).

I am so sorry, Lut. :( I guess I hoped that no news was good news with your back. :(

I hope this epidural will give you some relief. Having suffered from some neck issues, myself, I can't imagine your pain.

I hate reading this thread, honey. I wish there was something we could do to take this away...restore your body to health.

I'll be praying hard this one will go well for you.

She would have left about noon her time (6am EST), and it is now 5pm on Lut's Wednesday evening so I imagine she is home by now. Hope you are in less pain now Lut and that the procedure went well!!! (((HUGS)))

5 pm GMT+1 hour

Back home! Glad it is over. It was a bad as last time, but at least I didn't pass out. I have to rest now, horizontal position :D
I don't have any result yet, but that would be a bit fast, I think!

Okay, back to my couch now:D

lut, my thoughts are with you. when i had my epidurals in late winter, the doctor had me take a xanax on an empty stomach 15 minutes before the injection, i could feel it but i didn't care too much, and i needed a driver to take me home. i'm about 60-70 5 better. here's hoping for you dear one.
