Thought I'd put out an update since I'm having a particularly bad week and it helps to try and put my scrambled, random thoughts down...decreases my frustration a bit! 8}
I am counting down the minutes until Friday morning, I am having another ESI. The last one worked for about 8 months and the sciatica is coming back all of a sudden, with a vengeance!! My back pain is increasing as well. My PM doc is starting to think about surgical solutions, he says the surgeons won't even consider doing anything until we do more injections and diagnostic stuff so that's the road I'm starting down. I am much more open to more invasive stuff at this point
I'm now at the point where I am pretty miserable all the time. I have times where the pain is so intense I can't breathe for a few seconds!!
One good thing, the doc prescribed Tramadol and it actually will take away some pain! That's a first
)) It doesn't come close to eliminating it but at least it takes the edge off.
Thanks everyone for making a great community here at SH, I hope you all have a good week!
