Anyone have to have a Spinal Tap?


Recommended Posts

My sister is scheduled for one tomorrow. I'm assuming it's to check the spine/bones for mets or to confirm spots they saw on her brain. They really didn't tell her why. She is really not looking forward to it, since she had one about 6 yrs ago when they were looking for her MS. If anyone has any experience with this, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

I had one back in the late 90s checking for MS also b/c I was having a lot of weakness.

I am not sure how much it changed, the first time at the dr office it hurt too much, so I had it done at a hospital under guidance of ultrasound (or some machine). It was not too bad and then I remember I had to lay in bed for the day.

Let us know how she does.
