I have to be at the hospital (outpatient) at 10:20. Monday 6/11/18. Marlin is taking me. I have to have a driver.

They are going to do shots on 3 levels of my back again, bilateral (both sides) .

I would appreciate your prayers. Thank you my friends. I'll let you know how things work out. I hope and pray it goes as well as it did last time.

I have a follow up appointment on the 19th. If the shots work again, they will decide if they are going to go back in and burn the nerves. We will see.

Then all I have to get fixed is my right knee :bandaid: and I will be back on track once again. :getdown: :lifter: :tread:

I am back. It went well. After the procedure, I wasn't feeling any pain at all... until the numbing medicine wore off. Then, WOW. But it is like having a flu shot or I should say, 6 flu shots. LOL. The horrible deep pain I was in before isn't there. Yippee!!!!!!!

How wonderful that the shots have given you some relief, Bobbi. I pray that soon you will be free from back pain and able to concentrate on getting that knee fixed! It amazes me what they can do these days to help us with our medical issues.

I have some sore muscles from the shots but the deep internal pain I was in has really lessened. I am so grateful. I also pulled a muscle on the right side and that has been grabbing, if I turn too quickly. But I am on the road to recovery and I very, very happy. Thank you my friends. I can always count on each of you.

I saw the dr this morning on my back. Since the shots in my back worked. They are going to schedule me back in to have those nerves burned. I should hear about the scheduling some time this week.

Where they gave the shots, does not hurt. Yippee. But there is a section on the right side above that.... it still hurts a LOT! After the nerves get burned, he will give me steroid and something else shots in that muscle to help with it.

I had the Steroid shot a few times but did not get a relieve with them, that was when my insurance would not pay them all the way.

Thank you. I spent yesterday down flat in bed with my back again. It feels a bit better today, although it is extremely sore. And, I am starting a cold. Yuck! I am doubling up on my vitamin C and hope to head it off.

All in all.... things are better than they were.... so.... I am very lucky and blessed.

And Then...........

The back spasms hit. What a horrible 3 days I have had. The muscle in my back seized and would not relax. Constant pain and loss of control on the right side. I could not walk, I could not move my right side. It was awful. Hours of unrelenting pain. Eventually they called in muscle relaxers. Those finally helped release that muscle. I feel like that muscle is bruised from all the cramping.

I am glad it is over and just extremely tender.

I am so sorry you have suffered so, Bobbi! As agonizing as it is when I get muscle spasms in my legs at night while I am sleeping, I can only imagine how much more severe a muscle spasm in the back must feel! I am praying for your healing and speedy solution to whatever is going on in your back so you can be up and around to enjoy what you love to do.
