They let you go in a taxi? They didn't make you have a friend or relative drive you home? Wow.

Maybe I missed something... what was the epidural injection for? I thought you were supposed to get some pain relief from it, not more pain. Was it a spinal tap to look at the CS fluid?

Your outfit sounds just lovely. *giggle* Did you model it for them after they gave you the happy shot?

9th July 2004, 06:25 PM
well it was meant to stop the pain but they told me it might not start working untill 10 days they gave me some pain killers they are sending me a letter out to go back to the hopstial and see my doctor
i have a big lump and bruise where they put a needle in my back

the outfit was to die for lol when they took me in the had to pull a bit of the knickers down one of the male nurse got to see my bum lol the knickers where so nice i kept them for my b/f lol

no one in my family drives but i get the taxi money back tho

i saw my b/f a little while ago i had my name tag on still told him i did a runner from the hospital he said to me what are you like lol this happy stuff they game me is still working i was so naughty to my b/f i kept laughing at me and saying naughty things lol

does this injection feel like a spinal tap? because the pain you explained is what I feel lie after spinal taps :(

12th July 2004, 03:01 PM
well i looked up spinal tap and it sounds like what i had i had to lie on my side with my knees bent and pulled up with my head down when she put the needle in it was so painfull felt as if she was pushing the needle all the way in my back i have two red spots on my back now where the needles had been my back feels so tight now . whats a spinal tap for

12th July 2004, 07:14 PM
In a spinal tap, they withdraw some of the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid: a watery fluid, continuously produced and absorbed, which flows in the ventricles, or cavities within the brain and around the surface of the brain and spinal cord) by inserting a needle into the lumbar portion of the spine. After drawing the fluid, they examine it for signs of infection or disease of the central nervous system.
