Injection Results [Dec. 17th, 2008|11:39 am]

[Current Mood |disappointeddisappointed]

Instead of doing the facet injection, he just repeated the last injection he did only this time MUCH closer to the disk. And it HURTS and I don't have the pain relief I had last time, but I think that may be because he used more steroids and less numbing stuff? He said it was the same, but I SAW him do it further away from the spine last night and not in the "epidural" space. I'm so frustrated and I'm already FREAKING moody from this dose of steroids so I may break into tears.

Ellen was an awesome hostess but unfortunately I threw up my dinner in the restaurant AND fell asleep early making myself a bore of a guest.

The injection still could work, but right now I'm beyond disappointed and depressed. How are they going to help me? I'm ready to get a new MRI. There's no way my back hurts THIS bad and the nerve hurts THIS bad with nothing being wrong with it. I mean, it seems impossible. I was just counting on this to work.

I'm already at home and Craig is here with me. I have a work task to finish up, but I'm glad he's here. We'd love to see you when you have time, but don't skimp on sleep or screw up your other plans to do it. I'm excited to give you your Christmas present. :)

Ok. Good. That makes me feel better knowing you are safely at home.

I replied to your email. I will be down for sure on Friday, but will do Thursday with Amy in addition.

Yay! Ok, I haven't heard back from Amy yet. I am willing to host at my house so we don't have to spend lots of money, but if it is snowy we many not be able to meet up. We can make plans, but we are all subject to the weather.
