Original post ..

Hi and Ty everyone for replies. I didn't chicken out and had it done. They said it was one of the worst they have seen. I got though my firstaggresive therapy thins morning with nerve block still working. He was able to get it to 180 woohoo,! The block is wearing off now and I feel sore but not like ti thought at all. They also gave me some heavy meds. It was so nice having a great nights sleep that I haven't had in 3 months. Now to push through the next 2 weeks of therapy and staying positive . Again, Ty so much for your replies.

4 days after MUA sore but nothing like before. Therapy everyday is rough but pushing through. Range of motion is almost back to normal. Bending the elbow and forearm out is the hardest one. I am so happy I went through with it. The only other problem is insurance not wanting to extend more therapy. If you are only doing therapy and thinking about MUA keep this in mind as therapy here is $80half hour.

    Dear LadyB, well although the massages are so amazing and helpful, the results only last a day or so and then it goes back. I have decided I have waited long enough. I am going into Doc in tow days to discuss the MUA. I can't take it anymore. So, i am hoping he can do it the next day but i may have to wait a week. I have a question for yuou..did you have to take pain meds to get through the 2-week therapy sessions? I currently take two only on therapy days when they rip me.
