I hope someone can help with this. I don't know why I didn't think to ask my Dr. but I'd rather hear from someone who's had the procedure anyway. My main fear is that the facet injections will be like a mylogram (sp?). The pain of that was so horrendous I couldn't quit crying for hours, it's like the pain set all my nerves off. I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implant and the pain of the mylogram was almost as bad as the stimulator surgery.
Please tell me the facet injections aren't like that. I've read about them and I'm about to call and cancel. I've had severe back pain for the past few years but the stimulator is for Peripherial Neropathy in my feet, no help for my back. Can anyone tell me if the facet injections are like a mylogram? Are the injections worth it and do they work?
I know that's alot of questions but I'm a nervous wreck. I've lived with so much pain I just can't stand any more.
Thanks for any info!
