RS great to hear back so soon from ya. LOL about
the metal detector! I suppose the way they have them set so sensitive that it would beep on me.
The Mylogram actually shows the nerves much better and they can map where the nerve is pinching at or so that is the hope. Not real happy about
going through a second Mylogram, but if it will show where the pain is I say I will put up with the pain and do the darn thing.
I am not working and haven't been since 2003. I am currently trying to get Disability and just recently had my hearing with the Judge Advocate. my attorney tells me the only thing that is going against me is my age, which I am 44.
The pump I have heard good and bad about
alike to the stimulator, I have done my research on the pump and if it gives me the relief that I am hoping for along with being out of the drug fog that the meds cause it will be ok with me. I unfortunately walk like I am 89 years old and that gives me great grief because when I walk I have a tendency to cause hubby to walk slow and since he too suffers from back problems (was diagnosed with two herniated discs two days after I was struck down but yet his isn't bad enough to require surgery and he has been fine since) he gets pains in his back as well by having to walk slow for me.
Thank you so much for all your nice words, if you need a shoulder to cry on I'm always here, usually unless I get blessed by being able to sleep for a bit. And you can always IM me or Email me.
