    I'm going for my steroid injection into my spine this afternoon, I'm on the verge of tears I'm so scared.

    Update

    Well I was finally allowed home at 8 this evening. The procedure wasn't as horrible as I thought it was going to be. but was still 'traumatic' for me [​IMG] I couldn't move my legs for ages, the registrar was a bit concerned, so wouldn't let me home until I could weight bear. The injection for my sciatic nerve was the worst bit, the pain was pretty bad, and I though my calf was going to explode [​IMG]. After that there was plenty of tugging and x-ray taking. The poor nurse that was with me had her hand squeezed to death! Not only did I yelp like a wounded dog, I also snorted like an excited pig during one particular painful part, much to my embarassment. However I am now home, with 3 holes in my back which also looks like I've been sunbathing thanks to the betadine disinfectant fluid!

    Thank you all for your good wishes

    I've got a slipped disc, which they 'think' has got a small tear in it too, so I need the steroid to strengthen it.

    Thanks all. I'm first on the afternoon theatre list, so I'll be wheeled to theatre about half one, so think of me!

    A friend of mine had the same thing done and she was fine, They will numbe the area before the injection so you wont be in any pain, If your really tense going in they may give you a seditive to relax you as you need to keep still. This is a common procedure so dont worry you'll be fine. Let us know how you get on

    Thanks skyemagic. I'm actually feeling rather crap to be honest. I'm very tender near one of the bone injection sites, just wish I could be normal again!
