    I hope your wife will be okay!!!! Good luck with the nursing part-it's hard. My husband has to be a saint. This thing I am doing is making me crazy. Any advice? i always understand your posts about pain; it is consuming and I am not like that. I want to get this over with and I have so much to live for. I guess I get scared of taking these discs out and yet I think it is the best thing for me. I also think that Mark is not feeling I should go with my local dr. I am not sure about your situation but the traveling part is so hard and I want my husband close by. I just have a feeling I won't be home in 4 days. I think this a a pity PM? I guess I just wanted to touch base. Thinking of you.

    Hi Terry,

    its Maz here (Marion on this forum and my name) so glad to find you!!! How you doing with your injections? I ask because I am having a facet cyst removed ..popped (hopefully) in Feb and my surgeon thinks its causing my buttock and heel pain however I get pain very badly on left side, buttock when sitting, but also on right side not nearly as bad, so I think I am being optimistic to think the facet popping will sort out both side,. The cyst is on the left exit formanen of L5 S1. From what I haveread if the problem is the facet cyst its one sided and I have pait both sides

    Do you think should ask him to inject both while I am under epidural>> I know you have had a couple I dont know what to expect..... Should I ask Justin if he knows anything about this. I know its not formal medical advice but you too have alot of knowledge and experience. I havent logged onproperly yet but will soon

    Another question sorry Terry what is the medication to counter the weight gain on pregablin??? .all the best Maz
