Well today I went to the back specialist...the MRI says I have a problem in L4 and L5, the disc may be pushing on the nerve...and that is wh it is causing me such pain...and the doctor was so cute! I almost smacked him! He grabbed my tummy and said "oh, you're flabby!" Duh! I am 5-2 and over weight...were you expecting ABS OF STEEL!? GAH! Dissed by doctors!
Anyway...he reccommends me to have the epidural...SIGH...
I am reeling...and have to wrap my brain which is in denial around it!
It won't fix the disc but it will put moisture back in the area...and he wants me to do some exercises..."nothing crazy" and act like a 40 year old rather than a 20 year old...Sigh
He put me on new meds to help me get rid of the pain at night so I can sleep, and I can add more if they don't work...once it works I hold the dose. AND they would do the needle with live x-rays as he is doing it, Michael said I could probably get to keep photos of the procedure, and you know the sick thing?
My FIRST thought...cool I could use it in MY ART! I am a sick sick girl!
Good-night gracie...the meds are kicking in!
