Epidural Steroid injection – tail bone

In 30 minutes I leave to go have the most painful of all epidural injections – the Tail Bone! They have to get the needle through such a small opening so they end up jabbing around in there.

My prayer today: Guide my doctor quickly into the opening where he needs to be to release the medications that will stop the horrible crushing pain that prevents me from walking!

I will need a wheel chair when I arrive since walking more than a few steps is way too painful. They give me Valium & Percocet when I get there. Then through the IV they give me versed. Which is short acting sedation but it doesn’t put me all the way out. I pray that it does put me all the way out today. Also I ended up pulling a muscle in the middle of my back while trying to shower this morning.
