The pain specialist just called. I'm getting a spinal facet nerve block injection on December 17th and I need to be there at 9:10am. I need a responsible adult (or irresponsible adult if that's all I can find) to help. Basically you get to see them stab me in the back if you go! (hopes)
We KNOW that he'll keep injecting me until I get at least 2 days painfree though, so it will be worth it! They are going to do major steroids on the joint itself where Dr. K thinks the spine instability is the main issue (rather than the nerve itself). Now, if THAT lasts for more than 2 days and relieves the pain the next step is ablation (burning) for a 6-9 month relief and BREAK from medication (hopes).
In other crap, I'm getting another crown on December 9th, this one seated on Dec 11th, and on Dec 23rd the other one seated. That means I'll only need fillings and a mouth guard for 2009 and I'm caught up dentally. Whew. Crazy crazy times.
