On top of me having degenerative disc disease, I had an incident happen to me two years ago that left me with multiple bone spurs on two vertebrae in my neck. The pain going down my right arm built to an excruciating level to the point where I could barely drive my boat on our family vacation. I had them surgically removed, and when I came out of anesthesia I felt like a new man. Recovery was slow by my standards but my PT said I was way ahead of where I should be. I have very little after-effects other than a little soreness from time to time.

Good luck with getting this taken care of. Keep the faith brother.

Thanks Peter.

There was a cancellation and I got in to see the specialist! I got an injection about an hour ago. I'm scared to death to test it out, but I'm up walking without help!

He said my pain will probably increase quite a bit in a few days as the steroid starts to work, but I have meds to cover it.

I start PT tomorrow.

My 81 year old mother had a back problem pop up just after the first of the year. She had the same injection but they didn't hit it right on the first time. Second time worked great. If she can do it, I have faith you can too.

I should have thought of that earlier.

Back issues suck. I have had my share, but not as serious as yours. Just constant pain for weeks at a time, but it usually goes away. Been pretty good for a few years now.
