If you’ve been following my story from the other day, you’ll remember I talked about how I was going for a second injection in my back to help ease the pain of my sciatic nerve. Well, I’m here to update you on yesterdays procedure. So let’s talk about how things are going post cortisone injection.
As you recall, I was feeling optimistic about this second injection doing the trick and relieving the pain and numbness down my right leg. I’m here to tell you that I feel it was a success. Now, these injections can take up to 2 weeks to go into full effect but I am already noticing a bit of a difference in the level of pain I feel, the numbness has subsided quite a bit also. I feel that by the end of the 2 weeks, I will be feeling pretty darn good.
So what’s next? I continue with the McKenzie Therapy guided by Dr. Del Real. I know I can’t just lay around and hope for the best. I have to be as proactive as I can in with this issue in hopes that I can fully return to my normal daily activities and exercising. I know it will take time and lots of PATIENCE on my part but I am confident that I am on the right path.
I know it may seem strange that I didn’t opt for surgery but I am still that suborn person that MUST, MUST exhaust ALL possibilities BEFORE I think about having surgery. In all reality, it may be something in the future but as long as I can continue living pain free with the help of therapy, I feel comfortable where I am at with everything. It honestly was always the furthest thing from my mind until this latest issue. HEY, I’ve made it through everything else back related with success so who says I can make it through this!? WATCH ME!!!
Surgery, for me, will always be the LAST option in my book. I just hope I don’t have to hit that last page EVER in that book.
