Hello Everyone ! I went to see my pain management dr. this week. He wants me
to think about a new procedure that they are working on for pain management.
This is a long way off but he still wanted me to think about it. He said that
a few of his colleagues have been using a epidurual for pain management when
pain pills aren't helping to maintain the pain. I am currently taking
Methadone for pain. He said that they admir you into the hospital administer
a epidurual, they put the needle a little further under the skin. They give
you enough of the medication to numb the nerve sensors<??> then make sure you
are able to void. After that they release you form the hospital. He said they
have only performed the procedure a few times so it is not set in stone. He
said the biggest problem would be to get my health insurance to cover it. Let
me know what you think.
