I just went through hell today , my Dr did injections on four vertebrae about 2:00 today L1 to L4 inclusive . Getting to the hospital was fine but no handicap van parking they said use the parking YUPP 6'4" height restrictions. Sprinters 9' + . So I go in sign in then the fun rousted around getting the lifting sling under me on the wheelchair now pains screaming in my spine jacked up and lowered on the gerney then flattened out and stripped . They wanted to use antithesis but I chose local so my daughter could make it to her clients at 4 , at about 2pm I'm in the operation room getting frozen and injected ,, wish I took the antithesis ,, but I SUFFERED thru blood pressure went up to 181- 93 at the worst part of the pain involved. He told us my problem is extremely rare he's only seen two in many years. Then he says you may feel pain in different areas I didn't know are affected. But he has hope and says he can help get my life back . We made it home for her clients too.
So I ask for the minute , I've been including everyone on here who asks and others who don't in my prayer times which seem daily.

I sure hope things can turn around for you, Silver. Seems like you've done your share of suffering by now. Hope you get some rest.

Silver,
I too have back issues which come and go. Mostly come. Had surgery on L4 &L5 back in '96. Helped a little for a while but something I will have to put up with until I leave this world I suppose. So I know somewhat the pain you must be in. Please know that from the other side of this earth, I am praying for you and healing according to God's will.

Silverbullet,
Not many things I can guarantee except your pain is only temporary.
Keep looking up.

Hey Silver, I can associate with back pain and epidural injections. I have degenerative disc disease in my lower back from L3 down and have had multiple injections and surgeries. My latest was last week for a Spinal Stimulator implant, still healing up.
What's the prognosis on your back, if you don't mind me asking ???

Back pain is so very difficult to deal with. I hope the injections are starting to help.

That's one of the few positive statements I've heard on your struggles.
I truly hope you get onto (and stay on!) a recovery path.

Prayer circle continued. Time for the healing to begin and the pain to leave so that you can get back to what you enjoy doing.

Silver,
I certainly pray for you to get some relief. I went through epidural injections years ago. NOT fun , and they didn't work. Keep your faith, and I hope the doctor can get you back to a better life. I pray for you.

A little update it's been two weeks since this last procedure. I'm testing my self with moving more and seeing how the pain is. The day I had them injected was the worst day of pain I've ever endured screaming, stabbing, an tearing all at once after getting home and the transfer to bed it hit and lasted for three days even with heavy doses of morphine. Needless to say the drugs have caused another problem , concrete in the bowels. And it just won't move, so now I'm fighting another battle. But good news there is improvement in the back pains, I've been able to sit up straighter in bed and turning seems to be less pain involved . Now I'm cutting back on the drugs to see just how much I can do without it. Four mg twice a day I'm shooting for instead of eight mg every six hrs. Oh and the fentanyl 50mg every two days.
Hopefully I can get brave enough to get into my wheelchair and get out to the shop. It'll take a year to empty and install the machinery . Being chair bound and alone no help at all. Wish I had some old retired friends with time to spend helping and enjoying food and friendship . I really THANK ALL ON HERE FOR PRAYING , GOD WILL RETURN HIS FAVOUR HE LIKES TO TALK WITH US.

i was in the hospital with my leg in traction and for the most part life was ok until the nurse asked if i had a bowel movement. i innocently said no. not so the next day after they slipped me a mickey. i'm sure there is a pill or something to quickly correct that.

Have you ever tried to get to a bathroom in a wheelchair or transfer with no leg help to get to a toilet. Pills to help usually make you blow out the toilet if you make it , by then it's squirt sity no h right. Ever tried cleaning yourself rolling in it. Nope I need regulated not kaboom bang ooee guooee. No fun but forty years of being messed up really disturbs me . If I had caused my problem I'd accept it , guess really I have but still don't like it. Ill get it straightened out I'm weaning myself off the morphine and relying on the fentanyl patches for relief of pain I'm feeling improvement so after a time spent upright in the wheelchair will tell how much. I haven't got brave enough to get out yet but I will soon.

They revel in our anguish, and yes even worse had them dig it out of my bum. I've spent well over a year in hospitals and rehab, at one point I was being tortured by a nurse and she was fired for forcing me to hold my head up shortly after three spinal operations in three weeks. Pure evil telling me get use to it you ain't never leaving that chair. Very wrong I walked for years causing the pain which put me back in. Twenty five good years .
Don't think there's anything I haven't been through . Dropped from a guerney by orderllys, twisting my hip and it's never been right since.

Heavenly Father, giver of life and health: Comfort and relieve thy sick servants, and give thy power of healing to those who minister to their needs, that those for whom our prayers are offered may be strengthened in their weakness and have confidence in thy loving care; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
