DragonFighter1133: Just seeing that makes my back hurt

Rosa Banks: @ Emily Greeson I to have the same brain condition called Pseudotumor Cerebri or IIH (Increased Intracranial Hypertension) which I was found to have back on March 15th of 2012. I've had countless Spinal Taps done even up to 6-7 attempts at one time which was painful that I needed Morphine aferwards. I was always admitted into the hospital for mines by my Neurologist whose Doctor's office is located right across the street from the hospital including her home. The highest my pressure has ever been was like 30 or 130 which was high. The crazy thing is when I went into the ER complaining of a Headache I though that I was just gonna be sent home with medicine but never thought it would turn out to be that serious cause they thought it was a Brain Tumor at first. For my first Spinal Tap on the 15th of March I got a doctor who was training under someone and when I found ou I was receiving one (even though I heard babies get them when Menengitis is suspected) it still freaked the hell out of me..... excuse the language... LOL!!! Anyways she was better than most of the other Radiologists who are required to perform LP's regularly. I have read the same thing about it being rare and not being rare because you can get it at any age and it's not completely a condition that women get only that its more common in women. I just hope your experience hasn't been like mines and wish the best to you and all Pseudotumor Cerebri/ IIH sufferers.

Keosha G: wow, I just found out today from my dr I have to get a spinal tap, does it hurt? It looks like it would wow. I only looked it up to see for myself exactly what they will be doing. If it does hurt how long?

Samantha Mayo: I have to have theraputic lps and i just dont even have them numb it cause it hurts either way but not bad at all i wouldnt say hurt even just uncomfortable

Julie Quach: LOL, should play this music when doing the procedure!

Emily Greeson: I had a spinal tap because I have a brain issue called pseudo tumor cerebra. I heard it's rare and heard that it's not rare. Have you ever encountered this illness before? 

Courtney Sr: When I was a baby I fell sick and that had to give e one immediately. My mother couldn't watch so a lady gave my mom her sandwich to eat so she could relax.

iceman18724: Just had this do today. Don't ever want to do it again

eddie b: Hell no not me

Dolphin12390: Gross!! I was in the hospital and had this done but dont remember a thing because i was so sick, thank god.

Julia Jones: Is it similar to an Epidural but with the pain? Ive heard its quite bad

Yolanda Gardiner: Oh hell no if I'm not sleep I won't be getting it done and I'm not afraid of needles

Narcis Anton: 

Mouad Al-Mansab: Is it really done by undergraduates..? or needs highly qualified doctors.? 

b00mYou: Amazing! I had this done as a baby when I had meningitis. I just never knew how the procedure was carried out.

grettagrids: worst freaking pain ever!

ash3227: It took the doctors 45 minutes to get mine in and working properly. It hurt so much I was sweating buckets

Kawaii Otaku: Might be getting one done soon to test for pseudo tumor...this helped let me know what will happen. I'm still scared

Larry Mellick: Thanks!!

Joshua Hampel: Will Do and thanks

TheDantheman21: Provide link?

nick: Fun

sheri226: I don't care how good the Dr. is, those hurt like hell! (& so does a spinal block!)

Joshua Hampel: Lover your videos, I'm thinking about going to be an RN

StarofNite06: No not doin it. Fear of needles....

Larry Mellick: Don't remember since I took the video in 2010. But, I don't think it was based on one of the pictures of the first tube being a little pink.

Pia F: ty for video, first time i see this from "bakside" otherwise i always is the "woodoopatient" :P I do this once a yr, i have IIH

MegaJunebug420: cool

Brooke Anson: Great video.

Larry Mellick: Understood. There is actually another version without the music.

ConjureMan: Finally found a step by step video.. thanks! Friend lost a bet and now he has to get a spinal tap hehe

Camron Stewart: This is completely off the subject of the actual procedure itself. But who picked this soundtrack? Jazz and spinal taps don't really mix for me. :p

JonetteTV: Im just thinking, this looks painful! great video tho! :)

Larry Mellick: Taking a brief break to make sure you doing the procedure on the right patient or correct body part, etc.

ej8allday: Champagne tap?

rebel vamp: i had one and it left me feeling AWEFUL for a whole week! not to mention some people need a follow up blood patch!

Larry Mellick: You are welcome.

shamille724: Very cool. I remember at a camp during HS they were explaining the landmarks to us and asking if we could feel the vertebrae on a dummy. I couldn't feel anything. I dread this.

Rick Grimes: freak that crap

AsE AwaRe: ummm... i just had one like 10 hours ago.... and yes it is very painful. don't listen to people who say it isn't, they are sticking a huge needle into your SPINE. how can that not be painful at all?

Larry Mellick: Yes, I do. Thank you for the complement!

Shannon Purcell: Not the right kinda music for this type of procedure...

Ian Cowhig: You don't have to do it decubitus or left lateral, we did this in fluoro and we put the patient in a LAO position. But maybe it's different if you're just using fluoro to place the needle.

Ephemera Ennui: Oh yeah stick a scary ass needle right through my back into my spine and just stick a bandaid over it?! I would die and demand a full wrap around bandage. I hate needles.

stuka1vp: Larry do you choose the music that accompanies your fine videos? Nice touch man. :)

Armando Torres: Sounds like the soundtrack for a gameshow, i sure want a needle in my back now

Larry Mellick: Thanks. It doesn't have to be painful if you give plenty of local anesthesia.

Amanda Griner: Video was quite informative, however the music was a little odd considering the procedure that was taking place.

rajeev varma: Is the procedure considered painful ?

Anthony Benelisha: what is a time out?
