injection dilemma

well, i decided after many previously failed injections to try YET again after many years of abstaining from them... i had the first one in August and really did not see a marked difference- i actually had strange icky side effects...then the second one was about 5 weeks later- and they had me book the 3rd only 3 weeks after the second- which i canceled- as i was traveling the following morning- and my hubby had just returned from a trip and was on a tirade after he watched a sports documentary that was entirely negative as to ESI's...i can not tell any difference from the first 2 and am also being "recruited" for the SCS fast track...i am ok with the SCS, but i return to the PM in a few days and need to explain my position as to the ESI...i have had an unfathomably busy schedule since last visit- and on top of all that i had a CT scan (results at visit) and had to reschedule an EMG for next week- as it was booked with out consulting me- and i was over 2000 miles away...honestly, i do not want the 3rd injection...but am wondering if it is really worth a shot when the first 2 were a waste...anyone have success after #3 and no results with 1 and 2?
