epidural cortisone injections

Journal Entry: Sat May 16, 2015, 12:57 PM
i had the procedure yesterday. it was kind of interesting. not very painful, but a bit stressful. it was so strange talking to the doctor in the OR while he's working. it's pretty reassuring, actually. 

he gave me a  lot of little injections to numb my lower back. i couldn't even feel those, i don't think i would have if he didn't tell me. when he put the cortisone in, it made my leg feel very uncomfortable, sort of hot and tense, just weird. dr said that was a sign that it was in the right place, affect the right nerves. it went away shortly after the injection. i was very very mellow due to the 3mg of versed they gave me.  it was over quickly and i was out of the recovery room in about 15 mines. not bad. i 

the procedure was at my clinic's brand new surgery center. it's only been open for a month! it was beautiful. everyone has their own rooom; it has those nice sliding glass doors like they do on House (lol). the surgeon and all the nurses for this were wearing lead coats (i don't know how else to describe them) because they took x-rays almost the whole time so the doctor could put the needle in at the exact right spot. 

my back hurts soooooooooooooooooooooo much! i've been doing everything on my phone so i could lay flat on my back. i'm at the pc now, but won't be for long. it's surprising how much you miss with the mobile app. it's getting better though. 

again, thanks for the all support. online friends are really helping me get through this tough patch in my life.

hi! welcome to my page!

:nod::bulletblue: gramma ruth always said, if you don't have anything nice to say,don't say anything at all :bulletblue: :nod:

you can fave and run, you can leave a comment, give me a llama (PLEASE!), you can just look at this page and then you'll be giving me a pageview! you can thank me if you want, you don't have to, though. :)

i love random conversations i love meeting new people and i'm really interested in your opinion about my art.

ill probably look at your gallery instead of thanking you....but don't surprised if you get thanked, too

it's nice to meet you!
