Hi all, I'm back! The injection was not as bad as I feared, but that first stick to numb the area was like a bee sting and really surprised me. The actual injection was mostly pressure but made my left foot twitch and caused really bad pain down the right leg which is where the pain is that they are trying to treat! The doc told my DH that it would be 7 to 10 days before I would know if it would help and that there was only a 50/50 chance that it would. I choose to think of that as a 50% success rate, my DH sees it as a 50% failure rate. One of those glass is half full half empty things! They warned me that it would probably get worse for a couple days because of the pressure from the excess fluid but that would get better. I went home and lay down and fell asleep for about 4 hours. Then got up and ate and tried to go to work. I work in an office and couldn't sit in the chair for more than about 3 minutes and getting up and down was worse so I stayed an hour and went home. Not much better today, but the boss will be out after 2 and all day tomorrow so I felt like I needed to be here. Might go home when he leaves today. The doc asked if I was nervous and I said yes, but the important thing was that HE wasn't! Thanks for your prayers! Hugzz Greenbean Stop and smell the puppies!
