Saw the Neuro this AM

You know, sometimes the ordeal getting to and being at the doctor's office half a day can really kick your rear! I did not take my 1/2 Lorcet this morning even though the pain was teeth clinching. By the time I got home, man oh man! Anyway, got off topic there, my Neurosurgeon (with additional spine specialist accreditation) did some testing, listened to the problems I mentioned and said he was concerned that L3 might now actually be ruptured and he would order another MRI. I hate to have MRIs done. I have claustrophobia out the yang. They have to sedate me....pitiful! Well, I'll keep posting. Thursday is the PM. I'm really dreading that one.....
I hope everyone is ok and doing as well as possible.

Im not even clastrophobic but it takes all the strenght in my body not to panic in those machines. So don't be ashamed.
Good luck
Hope all goes well for Thursday

acl -

You might ask your doctor if they have any open MRI machines in your area. They are open (as the name implies) and a lot less stuffy.

Oh yeah, we've got the open version BUT I've been told the pics aren't good and with the amount of pain I'm dealing with AND what I'm going to be hit with as a co-pay after the fact, I'm not taking any chances..... thanks
