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.

Aw Hell, sugar. I'm so sorry that you've had to come away from this disappointed! I don't even know what to say...this all just sucks, super-mega-bigtime.

(((gentle hugs)))

Thank you! *hugs* I am feeling less pathetic and sorry for myself. This is on pity party that needs to end. I've got 2 great doctors working on it, all hope is not lost, I'm just being an impatient patient (is that an oxymoron?)
