By the time you guys and gals read this, I'll be at the NeedleDoc having epidural #2. I'm hoping this one is more effective. If not, I'm dubious about going for the 3rd epidural. It may be on to facet blocks, which are more painful.
I want a bionic spine. Just sayin'

I'm home now. Holy crap, Batman, that sucker HURT! I don't know if it was because I didn't take any Valium this time (wtf was I thinking), or if it was because he went one level up (since the prior one was unsuccessful). Regardless, it hurt, even though I squeezed TheHusband's hand the whole time. If I get another one, I will be drugged to the gills. And if he suggests facet blocks, Valium and I will definitely be friends. And at least I don't have to walk on the evil treadmill tonight.
I know: whine, whine, whine. It isn't cancer, but I am tired of back pain. I just want to be normal again.
