CT results

Sunday, July 14, 2013

Well the CT did show a herniated disk at L2 (right above my fusion) so the pain doctor ordered a series of 2 injections 2 weeks apart. I don't know why he changed it from the 3 injections the back doctor originally ordered, but not going to fight about it right now.

So Thursday I am scheduled to get the first injection and I am scheduled to work from home on Friday. He also ordered a TENS unit for me-I don't think it will help the back pain, but it might help my one leg issue.

Busy week coming up-my car should be fixed Mon or Tues so I will get rid of the rental-that should help with my hip since the rental is irritating it (it is taller and hard to get in and out of it). Work has been swamped and then I'm off for the injection, so lots to do before then. Meanwhile the summer heat has come back so that should cause some swelling to come up.

Take care and keep cool! Diana
