Please read this before getting a spinal tap

I had my spinal tap at Stony Brook Hospital in Long Island. I had heard such horror stories that I was sick with anxiety. Well, this doctor was so good, I truly could have fallen asleep. When you get your spinal tap, INSIST THEY DO IT UNDER FLOROSCOPE OR LIVE EXRAY and use the thinning needle possible. This way, they look at the live e-ray on the machine, numb the area, and they put the needle right in where the fluid is on the first and only time. INSIST. There is no reason to be in pain.

Thanks D! :0)

No problem. Can’t stand that popeople in agony are going through more agony just because doctors don’t want to bother ordering florascope. Craziness!
