8> Hey folks,
Everyone on here has allways been helpful and so I have a question (for a change lol)
Before I proceed, it may be easier if I clarify that I am from the UK purely because the health system is different - not that I do not want ideas/suggestions from US cp suferers too ;-)
I would also like to clarify that I had a great surgeon and I am more than happy with his work!!!!
So....here goes....bascilly I need to find out what has actually happened to my spine over the years - I read everyones posts and you all seem so well informed. I don't know if its because Health care system is different in US or what but in a nice way I am envious and.......I want my information lol !! In UK we read any notes we want but we don't get copies for ourselves and so I have forgotten what I have been told - it has been 10 years (opiates for full time) is my only defence (snigger at self)
I know that I had a Discectomy (not micro) in 2000 and I was told I had degeneration in discs above and below. I have also (since surgery) had 3 different types of injections - 1 epidural, 1 course of x3 pairs of facet joints but I also had some into the muscles either side of the spine but I do not remember what they were called!!! Does anyone think they may know please???
I need to get this information together......the docs have it all on file but to be honest I don't want to ask them for ffear of it being taken the wrong way (I don't even know which way just wrong) :-? Also, I know the information is online to look up but I don't really know where to start :-?
Can anyone please shed any light??
Hope u are all well - thanks in anticipation - sarah
