Gradually coming back to life after the injection today. Thank God for sedation! I don’t remember anything after they started the Fentanyl and Versed.
I’m sore, cranky, and my throat feels somewhat tight – all normal for this procedure.
The injection was to the epidural space instead of the nerve root. I’m not sure exactly which steroid they used, but I can always ask for copies of the notes later.
The numbness and tingling continue. I still have muscle spasms, too. Time is both my enemy and friend. The true test of the effectiveness should be apparent within a couple of days. For now….I wait.
Special note of thanks to the incredible Stud Muffin, Anton. While I was off playing with needles, he restored my sidebar. Things are still wonky, but now I can surf blogs on occasion! WOO HOO! I am so lucky to have him helping me out.
