:lol: I have finally got a date to go and have a Pre-assessment (9.10.07) prior to a 2nd Operation, as the 1st one didn't work.
I hurt my back in Dec 06 was rushed into hospital on New Years Eve by Ambulance in absolute agony. Had MRI Scan which confirmed I had a proplased disc L5/S1, had 2 Epidural Injections, a Nerve Root Block, Physio, about 4 other MRI Scans a couple where they inject a dye into your viens to check for any scar tissue etc and endless amounts of Strong Painkiller and I'm now on Morphine Patches since my Op, all since January 2007.
I have been in total agony with Sciatica, Numbness down my left leg and in my foot which is completely numb. Even doing a little bit of hoovering is really painful. I have been back and forth to my Doctor who's been brilliant. I have not been to work at all this year and it's been a real struggle to live off the £72.55 Incapacity Benefit as I have 2 children aged 13, 16.
If you're suffering like I have been keep on at your Doctor. I actually phoned my Consultants Secretary and pleaded with her to get me into see him as soon as possible.
I totally understand where everyone's coming from on this site and I have found it a great help to know that I'm not the only one who's suffering like this.
Good Luck to you all,
cheers Angela x
