So had my follow up today with pain management. I have slipped protruding disc at T3 T7 and L5 is slipped with compressed nerve and bone conduction ( or some big word like that) basically slipped disc that jas a nerves crushed by bone in left hip. Surgery at last resort but in mean time gonna try epidural in 2 weeks with increased PT In addition ivr been diagnosed as chronic depressive and anxiety disorder Help please.
((( Gentle hugs ))) the best advice I know how to give is to break it down into.smaller segments. I can see how it could be overwhelming, but if you tackle it a little at a time that mountain doesnt seem quite so impossible to climb.
No They didn't give me any pain meds. He feels the risk out weigh the benefits with all the other meds I'm on. He wants to try and ween me off or down on my sleep meds to give a bigger margin to work with. That a why we r gonna try the epidural first and see how it goes.
@newfibrogirl2 I'm so sorry to hear this. I pray surgery goes well. Fast recovery and it eases your pain a lot 🤗🤗🤗🤗 I was also diagnosed. Chronic depression. Anxiety and Bipolar disorder. Hang in there . Pm if you need to talk. 😊😊
