And so it begins

I had my first epidural spinal injection Friday morning.

First, I must say that it was a weird experience for me because the maternity ward where I had my kids is now the pain management procedure area. I had my procedure in the same room that I had my c-section with my daughter and the recovery room was the same room where I gave birth to my son. Bizarre. But as my girlfriend pointed out, maybe it was God’s way of telling me it could be worse, I could be giving birth.

Anyways the procedure was quick and easy. Got my panties in a bunch for nothing in that regard, BUT the aftermath … OW!!! About 4hrs later I felt like I was kicked in the back by a horse! I could not get comfortable to save my life. I was moaning and whining like a toddler.

And then it happened … the most glorious moment… I woke up this morning with NO pain … anywhere. It may not have lasted long but that moment was almost orgasmic! Then I got up and with every moment came more pain.

I can’t help but wonder if this shot is actually going to do what I hoped it would or if I’m going to have to go through all 3 shots before that happens…is the recovery after each going to be so painful…is it going to help at all?
