hi I hope I am posting here correctly??
I've been a member for abt a week and have been doing alot of reading on all the posts concerning pain, particularly lower back and legs....(degenerative disk disease with sciatica and fibromyalgia)
I have had cortisone to the hips in March with marginal relief, and was booked for the medial block but after reading from these posts I decided to cancel apt. at least for now until I can learn all I should know....I have alot of pain but with the new rx for oxy. and percocet for breakthrough pain its abt. 50% ?? controlled and I am so unsure abt. going ahead with this procedure and making things worse...so I'm going to wait and read and think....I believe before trying something like this shouldn't we be at wits end first???
Anyway everyone just wanted to say how helpful it is to know there are others out there who suffer the same pain and who go thr the same procedures, its so good to hear the good and bad reports from real people who have experienced all and not just the doctors...
so thanks again, keep posting all your outcomes and your thoughts on if the recommended procedures are all worth the pain??
