Some of you might remember back several months ago when I had an Epidural Injection done on my lower back. I'm still having issues with it and so they have decided to try Facet Joint Injections. I have to be over to the hospital at 6:30 tomorrow morning. I hear this type of injection will probably put me down all of Monday and maybe a bit longer just depends on the person I guess :D.

In the morning it's off to take a 2 hr. journey with a 10min nap in the O.R.

Thanks Fellas I appreciate it.

This will be the last trip for this disc ( L5/S1)because the next step if it doesn't work is pain meds then surgery. I for one am not looking forward to that lol.
I still have 2 other discs that are screwed up and may need stuff done with them at some point down the road as well. The next one will probably be my T8/T9 disc.

Gotta love those semi trucks lol. Have a good one fellas and I will let you all know how it goes when I get back home.

Adam, good luck with the injections. Surgery sucks, but it may be necessary. My dad has had surgery on his lower back twice now, and it seemed to help him tremendously. Hope everything goes well buddy, keep us updated.
