Back op tomorrow

Post by albertajune »

Tomorrow I go in to have an injection into my sacroiliac joint which is next to the spine. Hopefully some pain relief and hopefully home the same day, although I have to take night wear and toiletries etc.
My cat, dog and chook are my main worries but wonderful neighbours are helping out. I am warned to have in a good supply of pain relief for when I come out but it can't be any worse than it is now, at least I hope so.
A nuisance that this appointment is so near Christmas but if I had cancelled I might have had to wait ages for another one. Anyway, fingers crossed!! )x(

All done!I. I had 8 injections of cortisone and anaesthetic which can take up to 10 days to be have effect. Warned I will have some extra pain for a couple of days so extra strong killers tonight. If the injections don't work there will be another reason for my back pain. I just hope injections have done the trick.

I've had the jags, June, and I can't say it was much of a day out - smarts a bit, doesn't it?!

I really hope this will work for you and you'll have a much more comfortable 2017.

Must say I didn't know anything about it as I was right out of it. The surgeon injects into the joints while looking through an xray screen which I think is incredible. This was different to the epidural that I had before. If thid doesn't work it will be surgery which I dread.

As far as back goes not too good. I go back to see the main man on the 7th to see what if anything else can be done. So far I've had 2 different types of injections in and near the spine but am back to square 1. I get severe pain when standing for any length of time so am doing far too much sitting down to relieve it. I still potter and surprisingly it relieves it to bend so do get most things done in my own way, even chopping up kindling for my stove.
I know of a lady in her 50s who has inoperable lung cancer so do try and make the best of what I have and be thankful. As they say, where there's a will there's a way, so coping alright.
Thanks for asking Richard {hug}
