Hope you are all feeling a little better today.
I would appreciate any comments or suggestions to this post. I had a facetectomy in February 09 - was a month free of numbness (never mind the pain). Numbness is back and so is lower back pain. I cannot get an appointment to see my spinal surgeon till October. So my sister talked me into going to an osteopath. He turned out to be in it for the money only, first time he said only one or two sessions and second time he said only three or four, third time he said maybe ten. I said goodbye. I don't mind spending my sister's money (g-d bless her), if it's going to help.
Okay not giving up I found that my health fund has a natural clinic and there is a doctor who assesses you and he suggested 8 acupuncture and 8 chiropractor treatments. The chiropractor suggested potassium, the acupuncturist suggested more iron. My GP said they are both mad.
What I would like to know is if anyone else has gone down this path with alternative medicine and what happened to them. I have had one chiropractor and two acupuncture treatments. BTW my GP gave me acupuncture to stop smoking about 25 years ago and it worked. I can't stand the smell of it.
Love to hear from anyone that has any suggestions and comments to make. Many thanks shouav
