I can best describe the pain from the shot is someone pinching you were you are bruised. Fortunately I wasn't in a lot of pain prior, which means I wasn't overly sensitive. I never seen a needle go so deep into me before (although D pointed out the epidural I received probably did, but I didn't see it.) I caught my groan from the pain, grabbed the dr. should so I didn't fall over. He had a hold of the needle so I wanted to make sure we stayed together until it was done. Still too soon to determine if it will be lasting pain relief or not. I'm have great expectation that it will help in the long run. All the sensations it caused were pains that I felt before with my inflamed hip.
I have been diligent to slow down, to do my daily physical therapy exercises. It has helped tremendously. I'm slowly regaining strength in my body. I'm really amazed how much muscle I lost from the foot sprain.
I weighed in at the dr. I'm down a few pounds. Still not at my pre-winter weight, but happy to be moving in the right directions. Many of my summer close are fitting better. I've stopped (or close to it) weighing at home. It's not about the number, but about obedience, self-control and living by the spirit. If I'm doing these things, the number will be where it needs to be.
So if you get a moment, say a prayer for me. That the shot is effective and my focus remain on my Healer - He has healed my soul, in that I will be content.
