I'm glad that the procedure is over with, it sounds awfully painful in itself. I had several epidural injections (I think they were called a raques cathetar) where they could not go straight into the level of my spine where my pain was because the fusion was "too good" and too much bone was in the way, so they had to go up through my tailbone, up to the level of my pain, and they do not sedate you at all because they say they want to know what you are feeling and where you are feeling it.
It was the most barbaric thing anyone has ever done to me awake! and I had it done 5 times. The first three were done a couple of weeks apart and the third one gave me significant relief, but only for 3 days. The other two times were done as a last resort out of desperation for some relief, but they did nothing.
I know that they work wonderful for some people, and I sure do hope that you are one of them!
