i received the results of my MRI. apparently i have a slipped disc between the L4-L5 lumbar area. yep. my choices for fixing that are either surgery or caudal nerve block. I'm going for the nerve block, but last night at work i was talking to one of our anesthesiologists who wrote me a prescription for some steroids and he said that may work to shrink it and relieve pressure. so i opted to try that first, then Tues will have the block if i am not feeling relief. at least i know what it is and it's fixable. it's terrible where your mind goes when you know too many things it could be... a positive that has come from all this.... i no longer suffer from constipation as i scared the shit out of myself several times this week....

Yay! That all sounds relatively easy to deal with, and not as bad as some of the things that I'm sure were running through your head, right? I'm glad things will be better soon. I hope the steroids work.

(word ver. - pinabin It made me giggle, don't ask!)

well that's something anyway. let's hope that the steroids do some good and you're soon feeling better. :-))

thank you ladies. yes, i think the steroids are working because i dont have any pain now... but my legs still have some weakness. i've been on the steroids 2 days now. hey maybe i won't need the nerve block after all. that would be great!
again, merci beaucoup!
