  • Hi everyone, I recently saw a neurosurgeon who sent me for a CT scan and a flexion X-ray. The X-ray showed that I have slight (grade 1) movement in 4 of my lumbar disks-the same ones affected by arthritis. Not bad enough for surgery, but I don't think I'm a candidate anyway because its so widespread. I have a "moderate protrusion" L5-S1 so were going to try another epidural. Fingers crossed.

  • Hi scott our pains will never compare to being nailed to a bloody cross and beaten like christ was.keep your faith and keep the pain at bay all the very best chris.

  • Hi Chrisdee, I had my epidural 6 days ago and think I might be feeling a little bit better. Hopefully its not just wishful thinking. Either way I know my faith will keep me strong and my head where it needs to be. Good luck to you in your journey(smiley face)
