I went to Stanford for a second try at my sixth Spinraza injection yesterday. Avoiding dramatic tension, the treatment was successful. In fact, after some discussions with Connie (the nurse practitioner who is overseeing the Spinraza treatments for the hospital), I was prescribed a little stronger pain med. They added some blankets to the table I need to lay on and they were able to get the needle in my spine in record speed. I think it took a half-hour all told from gurney to table and back to gurney for a 20 minute rest. They do the rest after to try and avoid headaches that sometimes occur after a spinal tap. It worked out just fine. Now I have three months until the next one.
