Well that last Epidural that I had didn't last but three weeks, and my left arm has been killing me! When I seen my Pain Doc for my refill, he asked if I knew any neurosurgeon, I gave him a name, and they are doing the referral. He said he didn't know if she would be able to help me or not, but he wanted her to take a look and see if she could do anything surgically! I had seen her once before 12 years ago for my herniated disc at T12 but she was mainly doing Brain surgery back then and she would not touch my thorasic disc, as would anybody else in my area! She has been doing allot of Lumbar and Cervical disc surgeries the last 10 years, so who knows what she will say. The Doc says it the C6/7 fusion that is the problem and it has narrowed and pressing on the nerve root! But he won't give any more epidurals to that area. They said I should hear from them next week with an appointment date.
 
So that is my up-to the date news!

Oh Yes had a couple come and look at the house tonight. I keep my fingers crossed!

  Dear WhiteBeard,

Good evening! Had a blast at chat night, did you too? Pretty cool to not feel quite so alone, I think. :-)    I don't know too much about surgeries of the spine....  But it would be nice if she or anyone else could help with pain control in that area.   shakehead    I feel awfull when I hear someone has had to get brave and go through rounds of spinal injections.. just to not have them work shakehead Take every ounce of tuffness my lil 120lb body has to get my injections done.  *huggs*  But! Hopefully good news on the horizon :-)    Sell the house, check out doctor, pack you baggs and go to a spa retreat *kidding*

*huggs*

White Beard,
I'm so sorry the epidural didn't last longer. But maybe it's good to get your neck evaluated while you're still around doctors you know. If you're not comfortable that this NS you're going to see has done enough of the procedure you need, please get a second opinion. Are you close to any major medical centers? I heard on the news the U.S. News issue with the list of the best hospitals is coming out. Cleveland Clinic was in the top 5 again. But think they also list them by condition, too. You might look for it.

I agree that scents can make a home feel more appealing. A candle or two is probably the easiest way to do it! I do hope it sells soon, if that's what you want. Do you have a place in mind where you might go temporarily? With a friend, or renting a small apartment? That way you wouldn't have to make a hasty decision.

I hope you take it easy and try to relax your neck and arm and can get a little relief!

WhiteBeard,
I have to agree with PALady on getting a second opinion and such for your neurologist...
Maybe giving a research hospital a try, maybe look on rate my md...injections are just a first
round, what procedures have they tried????
Do you have a portable tens unit??

Hope your house sells soon!

Thanks for all the support!

Dani the chat last night was fun, I just could not keep up with all of it! That is only the second time I have ever don that, an the first time I was only on for few minutes and then gave up! But it was fun chatting with everyone, I need to do that more often so I get better at it! I sometimes have a difficult time using my hand and typing. I do have a speech recognition program on my computer that you talk into it and it types it out, I woneder if that would work with the chat room? Anyway the epidurals at C6/7 were the easiest of any that I have had, the T8 and T12 ones were the worst, and I did not like the L4/5 ones either. I have even had them in the base of my skull and those were not any fun! But none of them in my back or neck last very long! Three weeks seems to be about the max! Before I had my shoulder surgery I used to get them in my shoulder and they would last for several months, which was really good!

lotsa dotsa I lived in Sacremento for over 2 years at Mather AFB back in the late 60's and early 70's. K ZAP was constantly getting into trouble because it would play the Cheech and Chong albums over the air waves! It was kind of considered an underground radio station back then! I still have allot of friends that live up in the Placerville area! We used to say Sacramento had two seasons, desert and swamp! It was either cool and rainy and foggy for months on end or it was sunny hot and dry for months at a time! I have lived in several different areas in California, Sacramento, SanBerdino, and Merced!

PALady once I sell the house, ( if it is soon) I was even thinking about putting most of my stuff in a storage rental place, and then just renting a very small place for a while, until I decide what I want to do, and where I want to live, in this new phase of my life! That is the thing that is so unsettling, it seems the older I get the less I like change! It sounds like you also kind of feel that way! I think we get set in our ways as we get older and it is harder on us to adjust to change! At least it seems that way to me! I know I used to be use to constant change that was the way life was in the military, constantly moving and have change in your life so it didn't bother me very much! But that was then, and I was younger, but now, ......well..... I am not as young...and...it is different!

Chart I do have a tens unit, as a matter of fact two of them! I always had a hard time with using TEN'S, getting the electrode patches to stay on is a major task, that always seems to fail, I sweat to much or something with the patches, and they won't say on, and I am allergic to most all tapes event he hypoallergenic paper tapes will cause me to blister really bad! So I can't use that to keep the electrode patches in place! Anyway TENS don't really do much for me, except shock me if one of the patches comes partly off! As for surgery, it will be a last resort, if they will even do it. But I have to have something done, this arm is really hurting and it is just getting worse as time goes by. Anyway I will just have to wait to see what the surgeon says, maybe she can't do anything surgically that will help!

Thank-You {{{{{{{{{{{{{Hugs to You All!}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Wow friend, sounds like you are getting the referrals I would like to have had!  I have quickly learned that any post from Dani has the power to make one smile, even when the pain is bad. I am going to have to find this chat room sometime...
 
As you read and responded to before, I can certainly identify with all the back pain and problems radiating from there, only difference being mine is in my side and abdomen. I certainly hope you can get on the road to freedom from pain soon :)  I had a TENS unit many years ago, and agree about the shocking part! 
 
Well, take care, and I hope you are feeling OK today!

infinite I think I have the best Pain Doctor any person could want, he believes in treating the whole person, not just the pain! He gives the refferals that will treat the person. Heck he is the one who gave me a referral to my counselor about my marriage! A Pain Doctor! He is the only reason I am some what hesitant about leaving the area I am in. But again I can not stay just because of him either! But some of the medical issues I have I would like to get resolved first before I leave!

Chart Thank-You for the list, You Know You are Your a real Gem! Thanks!

lotsa dotsa a KZAP friend! Remembering the Good old Days and some not quite so old days! I personally like Pine scent! I have a bunch of old Christmas candles that are pine and christmas tree and wreath scent, I could lite those! Or better yet I could just bake a pie! It is about time for me to make a Pineapple Pie anyway!........MMMMMMMM!

White Beard,
Good for you trying the chat! One of these days I'll pop in. Sometimes I just don't have the energy to even think about keeping up. Takes me long enough to read these posts and they don't keep moving! LOL

You know, I'd really be up for a new, adventurous part of my life even at nearly 60 IF I had my health. It's not age, it's health that gets in the way. I bet if you didn't have all the pain you'd feel different, too.

But somehow each one of us has to find a way to plod through, despite a house of cards falling down around us.

So I wish you well as you begin your new journey, and can only hope all of us find increasing relief from our little prison of pain.

Geesh, that sounds depressing! I'd better think of something lighter!

Have you ever talked to anyone about Radio Frequency Nerve Ablation? That's what they did to help me instead of having to have disc surgery & fusion. I'm so much happier. :)

Either way, hope you find something that works & lasts.

Hi White Beard,

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have much luck with the epidural! Three weeks sounds good to me, but not in the long run! Hopefully the neurosurgeon will have some ideas good for you & can fix you up, although surgery doesn't sound like fun, or something to be rushed in to. I wish that there was something more that I could do or suggest, but I don't have any wonderful ideas. I'll just keep you in my prayers!

I hope the couple liked the house & it sells quickly!

hugs,
Skeye

PALady You are right it is the health, and the pain. Some days I wish I could just stay in bed and curl up and hide from the world and all this stuff would just pass me by and  then I would wake up and my world would be back to normal! Have you ever felt like that? But unfortunately that just won't happen and time and events happen whether we want them to or not, and a new and adventurous part of my life is being thrust upon me whether I like it or not and reguardless of my health or whether I am in pain. I have to accept and confront it, and do with it the best I can. It is often not easy! This forum is often my refuge, you should try the chat room PALady, most of the time I just read what everyone else was saying! I could not keep up either!  last night was the first time I stayed in there for more than a few minutes. I spent a couple of hours! It was a new experience for me, but I am forcing my self to try new things,  whether I like to or not or whether I feel I have the energy or not I have to learn to expand my horizons even if it is something as simple as getting in on the chat room! PALady I know you have health problems and pain, and it does take some energy, I also have that! I type slow and have some difficulty using my hands, but still I try, please  come join me in the chat room  next week if nothing else we can fumble through it together!

Frances it appears that the majority of my problems with with my left arm is coming from the area where I had my C6/7 disc fusion way back in 85. From what I understand the bone is now encroaching  on the nerve root. I am not at all sure what can be done, can they do anything with a nearly 25 year old fusion? I have many other disc problems from a herniated disc at L4/5 and one at T12 just ot mention a few but this cervical area is causing me some major problems, and besides the pain just using my left arm is getting difficult. I don't know if RF nerve ablation would even be an option, my pain doctor does do that though, but he said he wanted a surgeon to look at me first before he would do anything further about it. So after that happens I will know more about my options! I will ask him about,if it worked well for you then, it might be worth, me at least checking into it! I do Thank -You for your support!

skeye Thanks for the kind words! I hope you are doing OK I worry about you!

Chart I am coping these down! Thanks! Do I have to memorize then too? smilewinkgrin

White Beard,
I could relate very well to the first paragraph in your post. I sure do feel that way. I guess for me the hurdles are getting over all the nearly constant paperwork that keeps getting thrown at me. And what I used to whip off in a few minutes now takes me an entire afternoon. Today I decided to call the insurance company that had my dental plan and see if there was any way they would consider paying for some part of the root canal, since it was the same tooth, the same symptoms, but the "treatment" (new crown) didn't solve the problem. Of course, they said write them a letter explaining everything, which I did. But that meant putting my taxes aside. And I've got this entire appeal situation and application form for my annuity. And the SSD application process - still collecting medical records for that. And health insurance, Rx issues. And did I mention my car needs inspection by the end of this month and it's a 1998?!

You know as I write all this it's almost - almost - laughable. But I guess I need to get through this stage of things before I can reshape the next stage of my life. But you're right it's got to be confronted despite the pain and health issues, or we end up staying in bed and now wanting to do anything, which IS how I feel a lot of the time.

Ok, enough of my complaining! I sure hope there's a procedure - be it surgery or RF or something that can help you.

WhiteBeard, I am thinking about you. I do hope something can be done for you to help you, in the long run, with the pain. Keep us posted as to what you find out. I do wish you a low pain day, soon!

Good luck with the house. I do hope it sells quickly. Candles are great. I found a favorite at Walmart for less than a dollar. It is on a display- a little voltive candle and creme brule is the scent. It is wonderful. And it makes the whole house smell good. It is beige in color. I try to always have that one on hand. It isn't too much perfume scent. It is perfect.

I think it is great that you are doing the chat night. I still haven't made one, yet. But I do plan on joining as soon as I don't get side tracked and forget!!!!

PALady I also hate the paper work portion of everything, it is a pain and is usually the most difficult! Often I will force myself to tackle the the hardest part of things first to get them out of the way! I know that you need to get through this stage before you can enter the next an reshape your life, but try your best to get through it as quickly as you can, because other wise some changes  may be forced upon you that you that might other wise not have chosen. I hope that makes since, but often one thing is dependent upon another, and  if not not done the out come of other things can be affected. So as unpleasant and draining as it is, try and get your paperwork done, and your applications in, you will not only be better off for it, but then you will not have to worry about how it affects the other things, and you will be able to move on to the other stages of your life!! I so often wish that I could be of more help and assistants to you, please know that I am here, and will give you any support and help that I can!

anice Thank-You for thinking of me and all the support you give me! You really should try coming to the chat room,  it is fast action  and I have a very hard time keeping up, but it is fun! and it is live action,  when you ask a question, you don't wait for an answer! I think you would enjoy it!

Whitebeard....
 
I'm so sorry the procedure didnt last long... shakehead    I was wondering... don't they do these procedures in three's?  I had no relief from one only after the third I found some.  I would love to have a pain doctor as you do.  A PM to treat you as a whole???  Amazing.  You got lucky on that one.
 
I have never sold a home before but man oh man it must be so hard on you.  I will have to say you are some kind of superhero.  Divorce, pain, selling home and more pain.  I don't know if I could do all that at the same time.  One of those is hard enough in a single moment in time.
 
After your appointment hopefully this doctor will have some sort of solution.  I know its a long shot but hope is the only thing most of us have.......

I will be thinking about you while I am off line. I know what it is like to have all of the spinal pain and surgeries. Did anyone ever mention a Harrington Rod? I have begged for one but they say that my spine is not ready just yet. I don't know how many surgeries you have to have before you "are ready". Best of luck to you over the next few weeks.

Hi White Beard,

Will try again for about the 5th time to see how this post does. It started spreading out across the screen so I deleted it many times already.

It will be interesting to see how the appt goes with the neuro. I am half way betting on a surgery being an option. A redo of the fusion maybe a partial if that is possible. I say this based on the findings of the MRI and your symptoms, seen it done before with success. Sometimes when they get in there they find more than what showed up on the MRI, they can go in and clean things up. Alot of wear and tear on a fusion as old as yours to say the least.

I know Frances talked about the RF and she has been so fortunate to have done very well with it. I had both neck & back done. The neck was really good, but not the lumbar. And these are temporary and pretty much just putting a bandade on the problem. I don't know on that one.

I sure hope the home sells soon for your sake. But, its also not a sellers market with  the economy being in the toilet. But we can always hope thats still free. I have been looking around in the area I live in and see so many homes for sale and many that have been walked off and left empty and its disturbing. My son built in an area thats 3-4 yrs old and I am seeing alot of the same over there and its just plain scarey. I have a lady across the street intending on putting her house on the market next month. Her husband is in Iraq and will be home in Oct. but his job is in Kansas. She is thinking she is going to sell in a week or two-little does she know. She should have sold two years ago when he took the job in Kansas, the market was much better. I asked her if she had watched the news or read the paper, we have more empty homes foreclosed on ever, we have set a record not to mention builders going under. My next door neighbor's husband just got a good offer for work in Tenn. and they are going to lease their home out for one year and then will look at how the market is going and make a decision. We are close to having our pad paid for thank goodness.

Take care and will be hoping for a good outcome with the dr.

PA: Harrington rods are used alot for people including young people with severe scoliosis, they can make their spines straight. I have not seen those rods used for regular back surgery since the 70's. Know of a 16 yr old girl that had the rods put in-she had a wicked severe curve I forget what the degree of it was-she was so proud after surgery and her pain level was nearly diminished.

Thanks, Susie! I had never heard of the name, but have heard of people with scoliosis having rods put in.

White Beard I hope your home sells soon, too, unless it doesn't matter to you. I don't know how hard it will be for you to leave, or if it will be a relief. Probably a little of both.

Thankfully my house is paid for, but it's not worth a lot and needs a ton of work. I think of selling, too, but then that's only half the equation as Susie points out. Plus I don't know where I'd go. It would need a lot of work to rent it out and I've no money to put into it - or any knowledge or energy to fix things up.

Oh, enough of my junk. I do hope something can be done to help you, WB, and I hope when you move you get lots of help and just supervise!

PaLady
p.s. Susie & WB -since you're both mods I kind of wonder about the quirks going on with the site (technically speaking). I've had several nights where I had a great deal of difficulty staying on - computer kept crashing. Now with these recent spammers and such...just makes me wonder what's up.

Yes I do want to sell my house as soon as possible, and I don't plan on staying is this area, I am not at all sure where I will go, but I will not stay here! I want to be somewhere that when the kids come and see me, they will come and see me! Living in the same area or town with the ex that just can't happen! I would like to be closer to my Granddaughter, but that means moving farther north and up where it is colder and the winters are longer. I am not sure I want to do that! The older I get the more winters disagree with me! And there is no bases up there, being retired military it would be nice to be able to shop at the commissary and BX, groceries are so much cheaper there! But who knows? Really I guess I could move just about anywhere. The idea of moving is both exciting and exhilarating but also frightening and foreboding!

Nurese2 thank-you for your concern,I will also be thinking of you with your up coming surgery! I do wish you well!
