Hi Guys & Girls, As you know I went to see the Rhummey on Monday afternoon, firstly can I say a huge thank you for pocket duties!! The consultant had a good look at me as he had never seen me before when I was suffering a flare up so it helped him to understand how bad things can get. And after a long descusion we agreed I to trying the Steroid Injection. So I have had my 1st injection! (No one warned me how big the needle was!) So there was I chatting to the rhummey Nurse and boom! She lifts her hand, I nearly fainted! Then I was a brave soldier, it did sting alittle. But I was glad she gave me a couple of leaflets explaining what it was all about. But since Tuesday I have been suffering a few of the side effects, flu type symptoms, upset stomach and headaches. Starting to feel more like me now, The consultant said I could feel a difference as soon as the weekend, so fingers crossed it will make a difference! Will keep you informed!

    Hope it helps.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    I do hate needles! Getting there still got flu symptoms, and feel tired. But not as bad as it was! And as a treat for myself and my next door neighbour (who pops in on me in the week to check on me) we're going to see breaking dawn part2 on Monday, she's a Twilight fan because of me!!

    Hope the injection worked.
    Best joke I ever read, "With that information and a diagnosis of spondylosis, your doctor can develop a treatment plan‏" or back in reality totally ignore you. Is ok I have a sense of humour and a boxing glove, not defeated yet.
