Hi Pamela! Yes, my isnurance did pay for them. Unfortunately I am so disease ridden adn low income that I qualify for state medical. So I can get them, with prior approval. I go to a pain clinic. I am still on all my pain meds; Fentanyl patch, oxycodone for breakthrough, muscle relaxer. The pain still flares up, I found out on Saturday! My neck still hurts quite a bit. The trapezius muscles and the scapula are a huge improvement. A friend who works in the medical community said that every time you get a nother botox injection it lasts longer! WooHoo!
I am going to see if there is any help for the neck. Besides cortisone. When my last cort. injections stopped working, all the pain came back in one punch! It felt like whiplash or something.
So, yes. I'm on all my meds for the rest of my pain and the Crohn's. Seems I'll be on them forever. Sad.
