Hey just wanted to update you all.. Had my injection yesterday. The procedure itself went ok. I was sedated but awake and aware of the whole thing. It was slightly uncomfortable at one point but not too bad. Afterwards however I had to stay at the surg center for several hours because I was very nauseous and got sick to my stomach couple times, which didnt feel too good on my back.
Finally got home, layed in my recliner w an ice pack, took mini naps, still feeling nauseous. Anyway.. the numbing medication wore off and I was hurting pretty bad. Today has been about the same. Very uncomfortable, still kind of nauseous, and in pain. But I guess thats normal because the Dr told me the first few days would get worse before the steroid kicked in and then it would hopefully improve the pain. Sooo overall Im glad that its over with and now Im just praying that this really does help. He mentioned that if I had some improvement we might do another injection in several weeks. We shall see.
Thanks to everyone that has helped me through the last several weeks (especially in the chatrooms) You are all great and I appreciate you all!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Hugs.
