Well I haven't been around here much in the past year or so.
Pain has really taken much of the joy from my life.
It really kicked me in the nad's so to speak !
I guess I couldn't bare to have all of my friends see me spiral out of control in pain. Sounds kinda funny being pretty much the norm for everyone on SH forum.
I pretty much pushed everyone close to me away, ya I know typical macho male stuff....LOL
Since before Easter my L 3-4-5 area really has thrown me into a downward tail spin.
Besides dealing with all of these neck issues, which is a total drag in it self.....anyhoo!!! I got in yesterday for some lumber injections, that really made a world of difference.
I went from not being able to walk without a cane or walker. To getting out of bed this morning with about a 40% pain reduction.
I walked down the block to the store without a flipping cane or walker , for the first time in months.
Boy I was cursing my DR big time last night,these shot hurt worse then any before.MUCH,MUCH WORSE !!! Maybe because She actually got them in the right place.
Thank God for my new pain DR she's awesome !!!
(Not to hard on the eye's either)
I sure hope when it's time for my neck injections that I get the same out come.
Now only time will tell how long they last and if they can keep me from getting another fusion to stabilize my spine.
So just when you think there is no hope, something as simple as a well placed shot may change your whole outlook on life............Hang in there guy's, there is hope for everyone !!!
