Wish me good luck

I have been disabled for the last month, barely able to walk due to excruciating nerve pain in my leg.  This morning I am heading to the hospital to get spinal injections.  I had rods and bolts and other appliances back there and the doc says arthritis is forming around previous fusions. Sure hope this works because I am just about to get tired of being in pain all the time, much less not being able to get anything done.

Will let you know how it goes!ūüźé

All my best and good luck to you, Steve.  Those who never have had back trouble just don't know what they are missing....and they are soooo lucky to be missing it!

Good luck Steve, those injections are not fun. I did a series of them years ago and passed out every time I got one, friken needle is about three inches long.
Hoping that they work out for you and get you some relief.h

I know how that pain is.  I did my version a few years ago.  Very debilitating.  Makes life miserable.  Good luck with the spinal.

Yikes, not good. God speed to your relief from pain brother. Three injections helped me quite a bit.

Re: Wish me good luck

MS - I sincerely hope that this procedure can get you some, at least, temporary relief from your pain issues. I have had some experience with a pinched nerve in my back, so I can only imagine what your are going through.  I hope that you have a good outcome and a good prognosis for lasting relief.
