The results came!

Dr said I have a few bulged discs, he says I should get cortisone injections and therapy, I said yes to the therapy but heck no to the cortisone injections, NOT on my spine!! The owner of Kacey Furniture died from having one of those on her spine, she had a heart attack.
My neck is so bulged it is gross looking, hopefully therapy will help.
Did you all have a super merry Christmas?
I miss being around here, it sucks I can't spend more time on the computer.. since I already spend 8 hours at work, I have 2 monitors and thank goodness for that nice chair ergonomics got me, oh and the foot rest.
:D

Hi Maria!!! :)

Well, it is good to hear that there is nothing seriously wrong with you after your injury. As for the cortisone shots, are there any alternatives such as taking an oral form of cortisone? Also, can a person be sedated prior to receiving a cortisone shot in the spine? I just hope that by not taking a cortisone shot that you do not require surgery in the future.

'Twas a very merry Christmas at chez gunterkat. Thank you, Maria!
I trust you had a good Christmas, too. :santa :xmasstree
Isn't there some alternative to the cortisone shots? Like oral anti-inflammatory medications? Or acupuncture? Or therapeutic massage? Or some combination of the above?
It's nice that ergonomics helped you out. :)
Hope you feel better real soon! :patback

Several years ago I blew a disc out in my back and chipped a bone which lodged in siatic (sp?) nerve. I had surgery for it and was up in two days walking and totally relieved of pain. They sent me home early.It was like night and day pain wise! Surgery was the best thing I could have done for it.

Bad part was my insurance company started raising my rates, (large jumps) till I could no longer to afford to have my boys or I covered. They wanted me off their books.

You must be in alot of pain. So sorry to hear that.

Sending you the best for the coming new year. May good rain on you! Free of pain :p
