Hi everyone. I have been reading the forums on here for several months. It is comforting to know that so many have similar problems and pain and find ways to cope. Though I am sorry that so many of us hurt!
Tomorrow morning I am getting my trial lumbar SCS put in. I am excited though nervous. :SS I have read what people say about their trials and really it sounds like it should be ok. I'm a little embarrassed to say that one of my biggest concerns is about how am I going to wash my hair!! lol I am sure I will find a way.
I am so looking forward to the possibility of having some of my sciatic pain relieved. For most of the last 5 years my right leg has been the big problem. After a lamenectomy, a fusion, then removal of the hardware a year later, recent epidural injections and lysis of adhesions my pain is now mostly in my left leg! Maybe after tomorrow it won't be in either !
I just wanted to thank all of you for keeping up to date on your progress. I don't usually type much, but do read the posts often.
Have a pain free night!!! Diane
