Post operative case cervical spine aged 56 yrs, male, discectomy at C5-C6, C6-C7.
Protocols Used: Tung , Tan and IChing
Most important was what to select and what not to do. So I decided, 77.2, 77.03,77.04, in the midline of the posterior aspect of lower leg (in the Achilles tendon), 3.5 cun from the heel. Midway between BL-60 & KID-3. Further added 22.01 , 22.02, 22.06 with Sl-3 and 22.08. A.04 was further added and his pain came down to at VAS-5 /10 but tingling and burning sensation was there in the whole body.
We further bleeded all jing well points and after few mins burning sensation was rated 3/10 now radiating pain, slightly perplexed situation, pain mostly radiating in all six channels, and in between channels wasting of deltoid and thenar muscle, any way, as per the bagua. Since patient arrived at midnight, I decided to first needle tender points of the spleen up to 9B , than stomach from 41 to 36 and in GB 41 to GB 34 also took some tender points between Gb and spleen channel.
Effort finally resulted and there was no pain, left the needle inserted for 90 mins two clock cycles. Patient arrived at 2am and left 4:30 am in the morning.
Accept my deep gratitude, finally Acupuncture was replaced for morphine tablets.
