Thank you for your welcome and words of encouragement. It means a lot to have someone who understands what it is like living with chronic pain. I really needed the hugs.
An update on treatment offered: -
My consultant has referred me to the pain clinic - hurrah, where they are going to see if they can use a caudal epidural steroid to wash my inflamed nerves to bathe and soothe them. It sounds interesting, I wonder if anyone has had this treatment and I also wondered how long relief lasts (if indeed it does give any relief).
Meantime I am spending time with my collie Molly who was 14 last week and still a beautiful girl, she is a bit slower now too so I can manage her lol! I've also met another fellow pain sufferer and we get on great which is so good as she understands what I am going through.
Anyway, going to try and be more positive, by being down I only bring me down further.
Once again thank you so much.
PS Hugs back (((((((((())))))))))))
