I had the spine injections today; everything went smoothly. It was more than I expected it to be: I thought I went it, got a shot, and left. But I had an IV, had to change into a gown, and go into surgery etc. I would have left my contacts out if I had known, and I certainly wouldn't have worn black lacy underwear. That had to look pretty stupid (and quite the ensemble with the gown, hat, and slipper socks), especially with all my fat I have now.
So now I'm laying here because they told me I'm basically allowed to do nothing for a day or so. It can take a while before I feel any better -- up to 14 days -- and the pain can get a lot worse in the 2 days, so I know it's okay.
