I love the Savage Chickens. Found here.
Well, guys. I knew it was inevitable, but I'm still a little bummed that the pain relief that I have obtained from my most recent epidural steroid injection for spinal stenosis has worn off. But it has. So I dutifully appeared at my physiatrist's office for a follow up appointment yesterday.
At my visit, my doctor told me a few things: that we can repeat the epidural, that I need to lose weight, that he would like to see another MRI to assess if there have been any new changes in my back, and.......that surgery may be an option eventually. Ew.
I'll be getting my epidural in two weeks and I can't wait. Love that pain relief... The MRI will be scheduled soon and the surgical consult will be made depending on the results of my tests. Which will almost certainly show that my insides are full of "blood and bones and organs". Disgusting, yes.
