Hi well as Hubby had been concerned about
me getting it done also the drive home after so I rang hospital yesterday to ask & they said bring pillows for the trip home So OK we got up at 6am drove the 50min(1hr) into the Hospital with hubby scowling the whole time saying he was worried.
then Neurologist gets there and his Registrar (side kick ) comes in She was Very Nice She'd be doing it (oh oh) but ok
in goes first Local anaesthetic stung a bit but ok then can you feel this YES ok More Anaesthetic -- then again , then again, then push Pain then REAL PAIN so More Anasetic then push then Shooting pain down leg and feel nauseas, I think we got up to 6 anasetic needles and maybe 10 goes at the lumbar puncture -- not sure as I lost count as I was busy sweating , she kept saying " I keep hitting Bone " - Yep you sure did !
so anyway just as I was about
to say hay I've had enough STOP - She turned to the Dr and said she didn't want to keep trying
she was really nice and it was no doubt my weird back that was the issue, I did feel sorry for her
But then they said I'd get it done under a CT scan Hmmm
I might think about
so I came home wrapped in my pillows and went to bed
oh yes Hubby keeps Saying I Knew Something was going to go wrong ! !
