Today was my epideral cortisone shot! I think this might work, finally! I'm in the wedding on Saturday, and so far, I am confident that I will be able to walk down the aisle! YAY!
It's funny too. One of the nurses who was with me on Sept 25th for my level 2 fusion was there doing my cortisone injection! How funny! I showed her my 9" incision and my tummy tuck, and she was very impressed! She was very surprised that only 5 weeks out that I needed a cortisone shot!
They had to give me 6cc's of morphine after because of all the spasms and pain, but then they subsided. So far it's now 7:30pm, and I am just now taking more meds! (that was at 1:30pm)!
Now I just hope this stays and works for me so no more tests and stuff!!!!!
