Praying for you Jim, I may be in the same situation soon, I've had a pain in my back for about a month and it's not getting better. Going to the doc as soon as I can. I'm thinking slipped disc.
Your on my list, too.

I can relate to health problems and claustrophobia. I never stop praying for you.

I can relate.

Praying.


Techs once removed the patient table and placed me directly on the roller mechanism so I would be more centered in the tube to have a chance of fitting inside; my arms had red marks from rubbing the side going in. I told them they should have greased me if it was going to be that tight.

Another time I agreed to have low back and neck done at same time and ended up in the tube for over 3 hours except for one 10 minute break.

I expect an MRI Friday at my return Ortho visit as PT has not improved left knee condition.

That would take a lot more Valium than they gave me. Praying for your knee issue.

Thanks, y’all. I’m done and sober enough to be posting responsibly now. Doc said everything went the way it should. I’ll know in a few days if the injections start make a difference.

I’m grateful for you.

Are more injections scheduled? I've done that drill a few times in the last 15 years. A series of three shots each time. They helped.

Praying for pain relief and healing.

After we see how this set works we'll have to do this same routine at least once more. If I get some lasting relief we just keep doing this as the need arises. If this approach doesn't produce any meaningful results the next consideration is nerve ablation. In the meantime it's more PT.

I'm back to work today, and so far, I feel a lot less pain. Optimism is a welcome feeling.

Of course the PT and exercise (and weight lose <redacted_emoji>) are the key, longterm. The shots can help with the pain in the meantime. For me, getting active again after a sedentary lifestyle, that included setting at a desk 8-10 hours a day and on the couch a few more, was key.

Praying for recovery.

Only 25 min and only lower half in tube for knee imaging, so not bad. Hope everyone else is progressing ok.
