I've been on this website numerous times for helpful information and never realized there was a forum as well.

A little about me:

I'm and RN whose bulged disc finally herniated and had a disectomy in 2003. Surgery went well and I experienced great results until about 18 months later when the "symptoms" reappeared. I've been on pain management ever since. My MRI shows scar tissue where my disectomy originally was and I also have stenosis. Being fed up with constant pain and being tired of taking pills, I went to see the surgeon today who is referring me to an anesthesiologist for and epidural, AGAIN. I finally get to the point where I'm ready to let someone cut on me to relieve this pain and now I feel I'm being sent back to square one.

Bouncing some ideas around with all of you on this forum might be very helpful.
I'm looking forward to sharing ideas and information.

Rhonda from Indy
