I am 12 weeks post-op operation l5 S1 microdiscectomy. Still have lots of back pain and sitting tolerance is only 10 minutes. My surgeon conducted bone scan which shows mild increase uptake on facet joints on L5-4 and left S1 joint. Now he wants be to go for steroid injections in the facet joints. My question is does anybody has any complication with these injection in the facet joint? I had one before 4 disc which went smooth and there were no complications but I am just scared of putting needles in this sensitive area. Any help would be greatly appreciated
