Doc, It Hurts When I Do This...Pain Clinic 101: How not to Perform an LP"

Read my latest essay about yesterday's attempt to receive a test dose of intrathecal baclofen.

Wow! I can't imagine a puncture without anesthesia working, what a horrific experience!

You deserve a cup of Turkish coffee to be delivered to you daily after that ____ day!

Looking forward to hearing good results after having the pump placed (under generous amounts of general anesthesia).

Thanks for reading and commenting, Elizabeth

I expect a good result from the next LP in Radiology and a successful surgery--and I will post the result. Wish I could make Turkish coffee at home!

OUCH again Kim

It is hard to figure out what these so called medical professional's are at most of the time but this take's the cake.

All I can say is that I hope the learned from the expierence so someone else does not have to suffer through this.

Hopefully next time is better

hackwriter replied to Rory26312's response:
Hi, Rory,

My thoughts exactly. I was bewildered that my pain doc allowed me to be in so much pain and ignored my screams and tears. Gives new meaning to "pain doctor," lol!

Maybe I should have gone to a "Painless" Clinic instead? So many jokes for this. Ya want pain? Have I got a pain doc for you, lol. Thanks for reading and commenting.
