bilateral hip injections helping!
After 10 months post-surgery pain (T12 - L5 fusion), things are looking up for me. My original back pain was gone, but the groin and other back pain were severe, requiring oxycodone and fenatyl to control.
Recent hip x-rays showed degeneration in both hips and some sclerosis. When my pain management dr. suggested bilateral hip injections I was skeptical, but went along with it. I had the procedure on Nov. 30, and now it has been almost 24 hours since I've taken my oxycodone and I have no pain. I'm almost holding my breath at this time but I'm jubilant and had to share this. Praising God and giving Him the glory for working through my doctor!
