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?
For my sisters everywhere… March is National Endometriosis Month… let’s bring additional awareness to this silent disease.
If you’re taking painkillers or muscle relaxers for, how do you … make the Browns go to the Super Bowl? (That’s a Cleveland poop reference my son uses)
Also what the hell are spoons and how do I know if I am out of them?
Been in bed most of day in excruciating, mind-numbing pain.
