Hey how ya doin'? <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Glad to hear you've had a little improvement anyway. I'm hangin' in there. Prednisone has been the best thing that ever happened since the procedure! So, you said the 2nd week???? meaning 2nd week AFTER IDET? Were you more active than I was immediately afterward? I was restricted to 10 minute increments of sitting, standing, or walking at a time, so I'd be up for 10min and then flat on my back for 3 hours, then up for 10, then flat for 3 hours...la la la la . So..I was VERY immobile. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif"> Maybe that's why it took my flare up 6 wks later than you.
I felt like h*ll last weekend and just wanted to DIE, but am worlds better now!
I sure hope you and your doc get the upper figured out and that 'pesky piriformis'!! I know it's hard to focus on the good when those odd aches and pains persist. But....just think, 9 weeks ago......
I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers, as always and hope for some improvement on the horizon.

Glad to hear you are doing better,hope things are good in Arizona. MY doctor never gave me those sstrict restrictions. I tried to go back to work in 4 days and went home immed. I then did nothing for 2 weeks but lay down and walk a little. Then the 3rd week I tried to go back to work a couple hours at a time, then I qould go home and lay down. I started therapy at 6 weeks out. I took prednisone at the 2 week period. I remember it was a Thursday and I had such pain. It worked good and I did nothing but rest for 3 to 4 days.
I just never have been able to sit very long even when I felt good. Now I have to go to the spine surgeon on Wednesday. I asked my doctor about steriod injection and basically said see the spine guy first. I do not know if I re-injured the disk or what. I really have not done anything at all I do not even pick anything over 5 pounds up. Well hav a good day
