What a great site! So glad to meet you all!
I'm recently diagnosed, see below for details, and I can finally get up in the morning without agony, like I'm being stabbed in the back and leg with a broken bottle. The only pain worse in my life was after the saddle block wore off waiting for demerol (sp) after the birth of my 10lb 13 oz son. The second of 4.
Sorry to sound like a baby, but finally my family, all 5 of them, are getting a rude awaking, and are having to pick up the slack.
It's really rather liberating to just stand back and let everyone take care of me. The first time in the 29 years of marriage......
I am blessed that there is no tumor and no cancer, and I am thankful for that.
Any insight into cortizone injections is appreciated. Is that the same as an epidural nerve block. My pain management doctor did not mention that phrase.
Thanks and regards.
