It looks like you are another new member, who has gotten past my "Welcome Radar"
Just how does that happen!
Well..I wanted to make sure to Welcome you!....and invite you to come back and visit us anytime!
I too suffer from DDD, and in fact, had a double lumbar fusion surgery back a year ago this last March. While I claim some success with it, I'm afraid it didn't cure all of my pain.
Unfortunately, it looks as though if, I will be on medication the rest of my life. "Bummer"
I have had the Epidural injections and have had both success and then again, not much of a positive result from a few of them. Cant help you with the "facet" injection, but it looks like several members here have given good responses to you.
When you receive your injection, you might ask for a sedative, as this can help quite a bit.
Again, Welcome and Enjoy the forum!
