Discussions that mention vicodin

Hernia board


Hi Christina! :wave:

So sorry that you didn't get the answers you were looking for. :( I know how much we need to see proof for ourselves what's causing our pain.

But, Linda is right! Don't get into a lather until your doc sees the films! Remember, I just have a 'small bulge' according to my MRI report. And...possible coccyx displacement according to doc who read my xray. When my Doctor looked at the tailbone, he showed me how out of whack it really is! :eek: And...the small bulge ended up including a significant tear!

So, wait and see. I can't remember....have you had a discogram? I'm sorry.....my brain is mush and I can't seem to recall.

Take good care! [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/love1.gif[/img]
