It's been awhile since I have been on here because I am recovering from a double spine fusion I had in October. Anyway have still been having pain on right side and surgeon is sending me for a SI Joint injection tommorrow! This injection will be with an I'v to help me relax, but right now so scared of the pain I am thinking of canceling. They don't put you to sleep they just give you something to help you relax, which I am not sure if that will even work on me because my body is so used to taking heavy pain medications for years. Anyway please tell me of your experiences and how bad the shot hurts. Would really like some info. Please be honest. Thanks!!
