I am The Mistress of the Hippocampus. Keep that in mind.
I would normally respond the the "find the abnormality" part while ignore what it's actually pointing at, but back pain just plain sucks.I don't pretend I can find it there, but it's good that a doctor can, and that the pain can be reduced, even if it involves ::shudder:: needles.
Ooooh, that looks nasty. Hope they can fix you up.
Vince, it hurts enough that the needles don't seem *quite* so bad. Although I will need (want) plenty of drugs to get through it...
Hmmm, one of those disks doesn't look like the others.[I'm not a doctor, but I play one on the Internets]
Cha-ching! Jim is the WINNAH! Yup. L2-3, which is an atypical disc to herniate and explains the lack of response to PT (targeted towards the lower lumber discs). I will be speaking with my doc tomorrow, but I suspect that a very big needle is in my near future...
Oweeeeee!Sending good thoughts your way that the needle will be ever so thin and the drugs ever so good.
Mmmm... drugs.Seriously: just had a root canal with no more than minor discomfort (so far, crossed fingers) because of our special friend Mr. Drugs. Yay Mr. Drugs!Keep us posted.Doug M.
Doug -- they gave you drugs for that? I've heard the stories, you know. "Oh, you just had a hernia operation? Here's some Ibuprofen...."
Youch! I've had to look at enough client disc images this year I got it right away. Here's to a quick recovery now that they know where to target the treatments.WendyB_09
