got my pain clinic appointment soon. No idea what they'll say but my back & knees have been terrible lately. Had horrible pins and needles in my hands & feet for a few days now along with the awful pain in my lower back.. Seeing the usual doc. The one who did the facet joint and knee injections a yr ago.. They dint work, lol..

Oh well.. Lets see what he suggests..

Last minute pocket duties anyone?

    I've got a day off work today, was going to laze around in bed for a bit, but I'll just quickly get showered and dressed then will jump in your pocket. No time for breakfast so I apologise in advance if my grumbling tummy annoys you. Good luck

    Thanks everyone... Del... Keep that knacker sarnie to yourself :shock:
    Lol

    Right.. He told me he wants me to cut down the fentanyl, he doesn't believe it is working, the dose I'm on is rather high and I should be getting good relief from that. So I've to try cutting down, no point taking it if it's not doing anything.. He doesn't think there is any inflammatory problems with the knees, believes it's all mechanical..
    Is going to do some radio frequency lesion? Treatment.. For the spine.
    And is going to try something similar (can't remember what he said) to the knees. Will do it all at the same time.. Onto the waiting list I go. I bloody hope it's not long. The pain is relentless :roll:

    So thank you all for being there.. Appreciate it and sorry it was all last minute, lol.

    Cheers Ron. Just seen your reply. Yep, I think we need a cattle prod for these occasions :o:lol:

    Sorry I missed this, I hope the new treatment works and isn't too long a wait, especially if you have to stop the fentanyl. I am in awful pain at the moment, and I know just how horrible it is.

    I will be interested to see if the treatment works, I am waiting for my referral. Maybe we can compare notes. :wink:
