Just wanted to post that I finally had my consultation with the Physiatrist who will be doing my nerve blocks and injections. This doctor and her husband have been doing injections for over 20 years and I have heard a lot of positive feedback. (That always helps to ease your mind).
The consulation went very well this morning. The doctor is very knowledgeable, takes time to explain and answer any questions and she has a very nice bed-side manner. I am scheduled to have a Sympathetic Nerve Block with Coccyx Injections... this Wednesday.
The doctor performs all nerve blocks and injections at an out-patient surgerical center, adjacent to my hospital. I will be given light sedation (Versed) and I'm looking so forward to relief in my tailbone and sacrum areas. They do all blocks/injections under fluoroscope guideance.
My check-in time is 7:45am and she will start the procedures at 8:30am.
I am a bit nervous, but looking forward to ANY relief in these areas.
I hope to have positive results, just like our other members have been getting recently... Charry, Debbie, Stan and oh dear... my memory is fading! I know there are a couple of others I can't think of right now, but they are listed under this forum.
I welcome any prayers and/or positive vibes for this Wednesday morning. The last time I asked for prayers and/or positive vibes from my Spiney friends... turned out to be quite incredible!
Best wishes to all for less pain this week,
