Hi Sassy! :wave:

I have had 2 caudal steroid injections 7/28/ & 8/12 along w/ two coccygeal manipulations to try and 'move' my tailbone back into place. I never had a decompression. That must be someone else! :) No surgical intervetions (yet) but, I may be headed that way.

The injections helped my sitting time and comfort. I can sit for 40 minutes before I have to shift and/or stand. Used to be about 10-15. But....still have my back pain and nerve tingling stuff in feet & shin and sometimes butt. I go for ReEval on 9/25. I get a break from everything for awhile!

I don't know if you knew...but, my BP was up starting w/ first injection back in March. It never went down and stayed, my PCP has me on diuretic, too. I'm up to 5 different pills (includes my vitamin :D) that I take. Sheesh. And I'm healthy!lol

I have seen Linda pop in a couple of times. I think she's still lurking. Maybe I'll put a thread out to see if we can get her out. I know she was having more problems w/ the whole w/c thing and the mess is taking it's toll on her, emotionally and financially. I feel so bad. Those dang lawyers....if only they knew what kind of life sentence they are giving when they mess w/ someone's case like they have hers! :mad:

Hope you have a good day! Nice 'seeing' you!
