    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Caudal Epidural Monday
    trs1960 posted:
    Doc agrees my feet hurt because L5 is very unhappy. Since I already have hardware down to L3 he's going for a caudal epidural next Monday. Then I have the pain pump test ten days later and hopefully we can schedule the pain pump install soon!

    Hi, Tim.

    Praying the shot helps. One day at a time.

    Have a blessed and wonderful Wednesday, Tim and everyone!

    Thanks and bless you too Dave. I sure like the relationship I have with my PM. He's such an inspiration to talk to.

    The bond we have with our pain docs is paramount and they can turn into some near friends we need in our life's
