Injury Update…

By Stodge @stodgeblog

So having said I won’t just blog about the injury situation here is an update. I had another lumbar spinal cortisone injection in early January, the idea being that an injection into a fairly pain free back will give it the kick start it needs to heal properly and enable me to function a little more normally. Well to be honest to start with it got worse, particularly on the day of the injection when my right leg went numb. The recovery room was like a scene from a comedy sketch with nurses asking if we could stand up yet. Of course all of said yes…. Fine…. Only to then collapse back in our highback chairs again…  Got two packs of shortbread biccys this time though and yes I nearly fainted again… I don’t do needles very well.

So has it improved things…? I don t know…! I think so but I have been so so busy at work its hard to tell. If I look at things I can do now that I couldn’t do this time last year that’s a good test. I can now stand pain free for 30 mins, especially if I fidget a bit…. I can get away with the odd bike ride if I am not stupid…. I can bend and stretch OK and my SI joint isn’t jumping out as much as a few weeks ago… My back still gets sore and even up to a couple of weeks ago my hip would hurt in the mornings.

Crossed fingers then, I see the consultant in late March.
