Or needle in the spine – whatever – either way it hurts! So the second caudal epidural was two weeks ago today. I did get some pain relief from this one – just not as much as the first injection. Also, it seems that the injection site right above my tail bone hurt for a much longer time. Maybe it was because the two injections were so close to one another…. who knows – I only play a doctor on tv.
I went to see my neurologist who was a bit disappointed that I did not get more pain relief – as was I – especially for the $200 co-pay. He took the time, sat and listened to how my pain effects my life and the triggers that bring it on. When I told he about my current employment status he seemed to think this may help narrow down some of symptoms. Maybe even get more relief since I am not stressed out and able to lay down when needed. We shall see about that….
I got one of the meds doubled to see if that helps more and I am on my own for three months! He made sure to tell me I can always call – but we are both hopeful things are going to be better – FINALLY! It still hurts but it isn’t as bad – and I will take what I can get! Endometrisos is still a monkey on my back – but at least he is not as big and and a bit cuter now!
