Ouchy Epidural

Hoping this does the job

Received a spinal epidural steroid injection today.  This is supposed to eventually help my lower spine pain and relieve muscle spasms. Am hoping for the best!  Left work early as it started hurting a couple of hours after the injection.

The back is hurting tonight, and The Legs are not so well either.  Not as bad as yesterday or the day before, but still hurting from the injection.  The butt numbness is wearing off, so the soreness is settling in.  This is anticipated, so hoping it will be better tomorrow.

Will be back tomorrow for more physical therapy.  Trying to get my body ready BEFORE the next client installation starts.  Going to bed and going to sleep!  Night all!

  2. Today at least its calming down! Missed ya too Shalunya. Sometimes life just dumps a little too much on us that anyone can bear. I prefer the chinese torture drip method of bad news!

  3. I hope this gives you some relief. You're right, the chinese torture drip method is somehow better, though EVEN better would be neither the major pain drop nor the slow drip. Hey, we can always dream, right?
