Feeling better today :-) Thanks for you posts......
I had a long talk with my boyfriend last night explaining to him exactly how I feel. Do not think
he fully understood some of the pain but he just told me to lean on him when I feel like I can not
handle everything. He said he wants to take care of me in any way he can. Plus I know he is s
suffering from all of this too. We can not do the things we used to do. But I decided last night
I am going to get better and do all those cool things again.
I am just really lukcy to have a wonderful man in my life.
I have DDD in the L5 area. Hope I am saying that right. The doctor tried to perscribe me Vioxx
but I was allergic too it. Now he has me on ibuprofen 800mg 3 x a day. I have tried extensive
PT which helped a little bit. But I think getting the ultrasound and the heat 3x times a week was
helping a lot. Now I am waiting to get schedule for a discogram to see if I can get the IDET
done. I already had an MRI which showed the DDD. If I am not a candidate for the IDET the
next step is fusion..... of course that is up to me.
I am going to talk to my doctor about me not sleeping at night and tell him about your
suggestions here. Thanks for the advice and help.
You guys have been wonderful on this board and I am feeling better today. I hope each of you
will have a GOOD day.....
