Friday the 13th
#1
I really think this Friday the 13th stuff is over rated.

Mine has not started out well, been up since 2:00 a.m. Headache, neck & shoulder pain, head wants to explode.

I am thinking the ESI is looking pretty good right now, expecting a phone call from the nurse to schedule any day.

This will be the 3rd round of ESI's since 2009. Any one know how often a person can have injections?

Standard to have a series of 2 or 3 injections done over 3 to 4 weeks. It can be repeated every 3 months but it depends upon the patient and the doctor's preference.

Still going to talk to the pain doctor about the bone loss issue. He may have another suggestion.

Thanks Bodybuilder.
Been listening to the tape of the appointment with the neurosurgeon.

Something those with cervical injuries may be able to help with this.

I had the ACDF just over a year agon. C5-6. Told it was a success, I am one of the fortunate one as the fusion took.

This week when I saw the neurosurgeon I am told I have problems with C-5, the disc is now bulging, irritation of the nerve, and there is an over growth at C-5, I believe it is a bone spur.

Last time I saw the doctor was Sept 2011, how do things with the spine change this fast, is this normal?

Not really but each case is different. I believe your bone density has something to do with it. Plus irritation around nerves can cause outward bone growth, the human body is kind of funny that way. It gets irritated and it tries to grow around it almost like scar tissue. But bone density anymore, who knows for sure and the drugs used have worse side effects than the osteoporosis.

Bummer from what I have been told and had done to me.. Aseries of 3 spread out over 6 weeks is best to get total satisfaction.. The bennifits and risks are weighed out per patient and I have had at least 9 in 1 year.. The problem with mine were very short lived, but did get relief. But the way i formed scar tissue with the past surgeries i have declined it......
