Back pain

Oct 05, 2015 10:26 PM

Talked to the back specialist today. I go in on Halloween morning for spinal facet injections. Hopefully it works I really hate being laid up and bed ridden. As for the next day or so I am in bed with ice applied for 20 mins then off for 20.....gets annoying

Hope the facet joint injection works for you Qweenb, whilst it is a rather unpleasant procedure, for those it does work on it can have spectacular results so fingers crossed for you.

Has anyone had this done and if so how long did it last? I know it is different for everyone but had to ask anyway

Didn't work at all for me, in fact trying to get my body into the position that they needed caused me additional pain for a few days. I know it has worked on a few people I know so here's hoping.

Had mine done in July and just about wearing off I think.
