Yes I did get another injection today but he did a differnt injection this one was an epidoral injection in a differnt place. This one didnt hurt as much as the last one did but I am still in alot of pain right now.
I do have a question for anyone that might want to respond. I was asking the doctor today about why the pain has been so bad and and seems worse sense the last injection and this was what he told me.
He said that its like a wild fire and they only way to put out a wild fire is to break it up into to peaces and and put it out one section at a time. He said that each time he does an injection that he is working on a certain spot and so to speak putting it out one section at a time until its completely out.
That the last time he worked on by ablitly to sit and this time he is working on the area that would inable me to stand.
Ok I can see the logic in what he is saying but I also think its a load of crap in the same sense. The reason I say this is 1. because altho I can sit for longer periods of time now when I stand my back feels like its broke and if I sit for to long then Im in so much pain I can hardly stand it. 2. I still feel worse these last 2 weeks than before. 3. He told me that I have a significant amount or osto arthritis and it is in my facent joints in my lower back and that the car accident made it flare up. Heres my problem with that 1. I never had problems before that and it is that significant then whey didnt I have any what so ever problems before my accident, 2. if its a flare up then why am I still in this much pain 3 months after the fact to me and grated I am new to all this, but I would think flare up doesnt last 3 months and still going on.
Asked about pain meds to be changed and he said that he wants, once again to wait and see how this shot works out for me and we would talk in 2 weeks. Here are back to the 2 weeks things again. He gave me some topical numbing cream and a tens unit to take home with me altho I told him the the elctric stimulation hasnt been really doing much of anything for me.
So once again here I am at a lost and still scracting my head wondering what is going on and waiting 2 more weeks again. Seems like these docs like 2 weeks and then try something else and 2 more weeks. In pain 24/7 with the same old pain meds that arent working.
Any of you that would like to chime in with any help or advice, its much welcome, feel like most of you give me better advice than my doctors....
