spinal injections scheduled for Friday morning in Semmes Murphy Neurological and Spine Institute. Kinda of nervous. Was just wondering what kind of relief they actualy provide. They told me it was a trial and error to see if it helped my low back pain. MRI showed results of Multilevel facet arthropathy in L3-L4, L-4-L5 and L-5-S1, and Degenerative disc disease at L5. So far nothing has eased my pain for long at all. I have been on different types of pain meds, arthirtis meds, and physical therapy. and been to the chiropractor since October of 2010.
I also experienced Spinal injections when i was a 12 year old.My parents took me to hospital,as soon as i got a Spinal injection my back pain was released.I think Spinal injection can completely remove the back pain.
Hey .. No they lasted about 2 wks for me then nothing. I just had the ALIF surgery where 3 disc were replaced and spacers were put in 4 and 5 and 6 /SI.. I had torn muscles, nerve damage,lgaments torn... I had my surgery 4 wks ago and I am still in massive pain from the nerve endings n ligaments. I was cut thru my belly to have this done which has not bothered me once, but the back is terrible. I had the epidurals,nerve blocks and both hip SI injections every 6 wks since July 2010 and it just wasnt working and my disc had collapsed so surgery was my only option then.. hope you are doing ok and feel free to talk anytime ..thanks.,<Kristi
