When I last posted I was going through a series of spinal injections on my lower back to reduce the pain. After the 6 steroid injections I felt some what better after a couple of days and I had hope, but it only lasted for a few days and now I'm back where I was.
I just saw my pain doc and he says sometimes you have to get this done 2 or 3 times before you get lasting results, so He wants to do it again in mid August. I hate it, but I'll try it and I just hope it works sooner than later if at all.
They also gave me Lyrica to add to my oxycodone to see if that would help. Any of you spineys have experince with that drug? I just want the good and the bad and I realize it works on everyone differently.
Hope you'll had a great fun and a good ongoing summer. I am still struggling with depression, isolation, and unwanted depressing thoughts. The mental pain is worse than the physical at times.
Sending prayers and good thoughts to you all.
