I am an amputee on the left side below the knee so I have over used my other leg to the point I was having awful pain. I have been going to a Pain Clinic for 10 years plus, and the doctors finally sent me for a MRI which revealed I have Spinal Stenosis and a pinched nerve at L5-S1. I have been taking pain medications for years, but I don't get any relief. They have scheduled me to have a Nerve Block this coming Friday.
I am totally scared. I live alone with my Shi Tzu, and I am afraid after I have this done, I won't be able to take care of her. He told me also that afterwards my leg may feel "funny" for a few days. What does that mean? Has anyone gone through this, and does it hurt very bad. I am at the verge of calling it off, but I need for this pain to be eased. How bad is this going to be. How long will it last. Will it be really painful?
