I had my appointment with the pain consultant today, a Professor in fact.
He seemed very nice, and thorough. Did all the usual history taking, examined my reflexes, range of movement, examined my back etc....
He said he thinks my pain is coming from my SI joint and has listed me for facet joint injections. He also said if they didn`t work he has another procedure to try?? Any ideas??
My Dad has his CT scan tomorrow to check if the cancer is anywhere else. Please keep your fingers crossed for nothing else

    Sounds like you have made some progress with your appointment, I sure wish I could see a pain doctor!

    I'm sorry to hear about your Dad, I hope the scan goes as well as it can.
