Yesterday I had the worst experience of my life. I have herniations from L3 to S1, so I was sent for an epidural for pain in my back and right leg.
The doctor started the procedure, and twice hit a nerve causing pain in my toes and all the way down my leg. He yelled at me that he couldn't do the epi if I didn't stop jumping. As if I can control it when lightning bolts are shooting down my leg. He said he was nowhere near the nerve so of course I was wrong. Then he said I would have to reschedule it. As if that's going to happen. I'd rather suffer in pain for the rest of my life before I let him near me again.
In 2002 I had microdiscectomy on the same 3 levels for protusions. I would prefer not to have surgery again if I can help it. Any suggestions on alternate treatments that don't include letting this horrible person touch me??
