Looks like my injection may have been a success. I've been up awhile now and so far no radiating anything in the legs or hips, yippee!! They didn't use any steroid so the doc said it wouldn't be long term but it still will give us some answers. I think the next step is a nerve block before they will do the rf. I have a follow-up appt Jan. 11 and will find out more then.
Straydog, how long did you get relief from the rf & why wouldn't the insurance pay for the 2nd one?
White Beard, sorry to hear you need to go through so much more testing. All these test we go through get expensive even with insurance. My doctor works with me to do my procedures on my scheduled monthly visits so I don't have to pay extra co-pays. Problem is there is alot of time inbetween procedures but can't really afford the extra visits right now.
I am feeling better today. Looks like the bug I had was short lived thank goodness. Today I have to call my claims adjuster for SSDI and let him know about
my procedure & the xrays I had done on my knees. Yes, White Beard, I too have bad knees.
Take care all and thanks for all your replies!!!
