I am 7 months Post Lumbar Microdiscectomy and headed for an Epidural due to continuing pain. Is this covered in another subject here? Anyway I have post surgery MRI's and have done PT, Accupuncture, Meditation, etc. The Epidural Doctor says the current guidelines sre NOT to do Twighlight or anything. I've heard horror stories. What are others experiences?

    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
