Some relief from Epidural !!

zeffyrose_pa6b7(6b7)August 7, 2008

Thanks for all your kind wishes and prayers.

The epidural went well---I came home and slept the day away--

I've been walking pretty well still some pain on the left side but it certainly is better than it was---

Still can't sit too long but it is nice to be walking without all the pain--

I've talked to a few people who have had this procedure and from what I gather it works sometimes but not always and it is not permanent --but even a little relief is wonderful

I'm planning to go back to the Dr. who did my back operation and see what he thinks--

thanks again for thinking of me----

BTW--my roses are a mess-----lots of weeds etc----

Oh well--Tomorrow is another day !!!LOL (as Scarlet would say)

Love to all

That is good news, Florence. YOu can think much better without the pain, and it is also good that you are returning to your doctor.

Good luck.

I'm glad to hear you are getting some relief. That is very good news. Chronic pain is a terrible thing.

I am glad to hear you have some relief. I had one about 5 years ago and it helped my neck problem. Only this year is the problem back. I'm seeing a chiropractor this time with some success.

I'm glad you have some relief from your back pain. Hopefully your surgeon will have some answers. I would think with all of the hospitals we have in our area, someone would have an answer for you.
Take care!

What type of epidoral did you have?
If you're having sciatic pain, you might ask for an SI injection.
