It just dawned on me that I hadn't seen you for quite a while; hope you're doing OK and are just too busy to hang out with the likes of us! So, hi, howdy, hello. Take good care of yourself, Kathy
All the good thoughts and prayers and hugs worked, as did the blood patch. My spinal headache is gone (though I have to be careful, take it easy, so the patch stays in place)! My back hurts, but what the heck, it's a fair trade, and the back will calm down before long. The doctor was a really nice woman, and told me that I should see an opthamologist about my blurry vision, as my regular eye doctor that I saw last month could have missed something. She also said that my bladder issues could be related to MS. Good experience, good day.
Thank you for your kind and booty - kicking words! I'm waiting for my neurologist's office to open so I can get set up with an anesthesiologist who will inject my own blood in the epidural space where there is a leak of spinal fluid, which will then clot, stop the leakage, and cure my headache. I think I only have to lie flat for an hour after this procedure. I'll let you know how things turn out.
I'm going back to bed and my bottle of water!
Did you read my post, Frustrating LP, Spinal headache? I had to get out of bed or I would have beat the stuffing out of it! I had to write out my frustrations, and it did make me feel better. I spent a lot of time flat on my back, too, and am probably going in for a lumbar blood patch tomorrow.
Actually, I came on line to see how long I'll have to be flat on my back after the blood patch.
Thanks, Mary, I'll keep you posted.
You deserve a big bear hug! Hi Marez! I can relate about how busy life is.
thats for sure. Hope to hear you soon!!! Gollie
You're right, computer going off, see ya' soon.
Thank you , I did fairly well yesterday after the LP, just the glowing nerve pain in my leg. Today I got up, showered, ate breakfast, and a nagging headache turned into a knock-me flat headache. I checked my e-mail from my phone in bed, and saw a note from you, and turned on my computer. My head is throbbing, but I feel better with the reminder that you and others are out there and care, and had to come online and say hello and thank you.
You deserve a big bear hug! I saw your mood today. I know this is a hard time for you. Talk to us if you need to. Quix
