So I had my first cortisone epidural injection today and my fifth lidocaine+ketamine infusion. The cortisone injection was super uncomfortable; when they say you will feel pressure, they mean PRESSURE. It felt like a twisting/pushing/squeezing/deep cold aching pain and I was thankful for the relief the ketamine gave me. However, partially due to the ketamine, and partially due to the drs saying I shouldn’t feel anything lasting except for some surface pain from the needle, I took my baby out for a walk and wow was that ever a mistake. I almost fell trying to make it to bed because of the intensity of the squeezing pain in my back. I guess the listen hear is drs don’t know shit and always rest after a new procedure!
I’m currently snuggling with a heating pad and my pup, and wearing my, “I bathe in male tears” shirt to cheer me up.
So your shirt is rad and you are so stunning, and I hope you feel better!
