Reply To: Lumbar Puncture
Mine was done in the Dr.s office. I went in for my regular appointment. He suggested that I stay a little longer and he would do it during his lunch break. I rolled over, he slid the needle in, took the fluid he needed, and in about an hour I was on my way.
No fuss, no muss, no hassle.
If your Doc is competent. There should be no problem. Just a little novacaine, just like stitches. It was really a simple procedure.
I hope you get some answers.
