They were to do just the lumbar spine, but for some reason they did both lumbar (lower) and thoracic (mid spine) and the results showed really bad changes. No wonder I am in such terrible pain.
Good news, no surgery yet. Bad news I have to have a series of 6 injections in the facet joints in one section and then the 2nd section. If this doesn’t help then they use radio waves in the nerves.
The girl scheduled me for more than 4 weeks and I said she wanted 2 to 3. The doctor happened to be standing there and since it was her day to work in the procedure room she could add another patient if she wanted, so I am scheduled for October 2.
Wish me luck!
