I truly forgot what it is like to be almost pain free.

        Bevo, I still find wonder in the world but cannot reconcile my injury with anything good or positive whatsoever.

        A truly blessed day,
        Maybe an intrathecal pump would help you, if an epidural injection did.

        Seems the only thing that will a) stop my pains from continually getting worse, and b) provide relief, is to fall asleep and not wake up. I'm not lucky enough for that to happen, so the torture will continue, and my function and ability to concentrate, and tolerate moving, will keep decreasing..

          Intrathecal pump

          This whole series of testing began over an intrathecal pump. The dorsal stim (though working) lost all efficacyand at virtually the same time I physically took a huge turn for the worse, pain wise, Spasticity, all symptoms went bilateral after 3 yrear of predominantly right sided presentation.

          The Neurologist/pain doc who was setting me up for the intrathecal pump saw me nosedive and felt there was a spinal complication, the doc who was going to put in the pump agreed and cancelled and they sent me back to my neurosurgeon. the series of epis and full thoracic CTs were in lieue of a myelogram and the results seem to indicate a much larger problem extending into the T section so the pump trial which was going after L3-4-5, S1 would not have worked anyway. He also felt that although epis usually last a while he expected it to last a day maybe a couple but that was all.

          All very confusing but now it all points to another problem that should be resolved prior to evaluating a pain pump and where it would best be located. btw the doc who did the epi said he superjuiced me and guaranteed I be great til mid Sept. oh well.

          Sound confusing? me too. But the team is good, and they're woking really hard to find any organic issues rather than just juice me.

          Kindly,

            I'd love to be this happy for a few minutes.
            If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

              Happiness is always a by-product.
              It is probably a matter of temperament, and for anything I know it may be glandular.
              But it is not something that can be demanded from life, and if you are not happy you had better stop worrying about it and see what treasures you can pluck from your own brand of unhappiness.

              "What's the use of worrying?
              It never was worth while,
              So pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
              And smile, smile, smile.

                    The cats paws were COLD!! LOL
                    Last night the cat came in from outside. He likes to jump in my lap when he's cold and snuggle a minute. I said hey your feet are cold. Then suddenly I'm hollering the cats feet are cold!! I'm excited. My friend, who isn't used to me yet, is thinking I've lost it. He's like, yea it's 25 degrees outside, they're going to be cold. No I can feel they are cold!!!! I have sensation for touch on my thighs but I could never feel temperature. Until last night. Although usually I am wearing jeans so maybe I haven't noticed when it started? I never knew little cold kitty feet could feel so good.

                          That's amazing, addiesue! What a wonderful surprise. I've always believed that good things came in on little cat feet and now I have proof.
