Challenges, Temptations, & the Abyss

Challenges, Temptations, & the Abyss

The pain is overwhelming… this afternoon, I could barely hold on to sanity, it was so bad.

Physiotherapy did not provide a whole lot of relief.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear this. Tie a knot in that rope and hang on. Sending thoughts your way. Been there. 😦

    • Hopefully the nurse will have some amenable options this time. I’d say cortisone epidurals are out after five times… but she may suggest up through the holes of the vertebrae again. Yet I tried an oral steroid (prednisone), and that went even worse. All of the rage, none of the relief. So the only option left that she suggested is surgery (again)… unless Humana will cover electrospinal stimulation.
