I went to see the neurosurgeon this morning. After looking at my MRI again and since I'm still in pain he left the examining room and returned with another doctor. This doctor is an injection specialist. "Can you do it?" "Oh yes." My herniation is huge and in a very weird spot, but the doc says he'll have no problem getting to it. My new doc also said I had a very nice spine-aside from the huge bulge. The neurosurgeon is transferring me to this guy and I'll begin a series of spinal injections. The neurosurgeon said, "you're a nice lady, but, I hope I never see you again". My new doc was going to start the series on Tuesday, but when the scheduling person found out I was on workman's comp.....now I have to wait for approval, "which could take 30 days". All rightie then. Meanwhile, I'm off work through June 15th.
