Good morning I just tried to call you to thank you and just emailed you... (5 seconds ago)...
Not sure you were already in Martinique.

Sincerely, Alexandre

 [Attachment(s) from
Alexandre Uster von Baar included below]Good
afternoon Porter, 

Thanks for your message.

Here is the copy of the MRI
report.
Therefore, like everything else
in the Caribbean, how to be sure that the “local” person
(in Tortola) did an accurate reading…  

The pain medication is definitely
too mild, the pain wakes me up at night then can not
sleep. 
-1 x Diclofenac
Sodium 75 mg every 12 hours 
-1 x Baclofen 10 mg
every 8 hours
-1
x Tramadol hydrocholide 50 mg every 6 hours
-2 x Paracetamol 500 mg every 6
hours

A friend send me
information from a medical web site called “up to date”
and it seems all the treatments say “evidence of
effectiveness are lacking” or “quality of evidence
considered low”…  

“local” doctors say it will
resolved itself within 2 weeks (somehow I doubt)…  
Would love to hear
your feedback.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Good morning Eric, 



Thanks so much for your
message.  

I actually posted by mistake this
on the forum... 



I am quite upset with the local
doctor, that prescribe too
mild medication, the pain
constantly wakes me up at night…


Anyway, I don’t know when I
will arrive in St Martin,
being solo and in pain, I have to
be more cautious than
usual.  

It is possible that I leave on
the 11 and arrive on the 12,
but not sure as I could wait for
better weather too…  



As always thanks so much…  

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi Alexandre,

If you get to SXM before the
13th.

I have some stuff in
my kit that will help.

I am also VERY friendly with a
local pharmacist who

knows everyone on the Dutch
side.

Good Luck,

Eric
