.........OUCHIES! I did get a mild sedation and I'm so glad I did. The 3 jabs on the right hand side weren't that bad at all so I was quite happy thinking ah yeah this is easy.

Then he did the left side.

I was whimpering like a baby. It hurt, oh boy it REALLY hurt. Oh and to top it off I think I may have done a trumpton by accident. :oops:

They were lovely at the hospital but I guess that's the difference in private and NHS, although I was via the NHS. I got a nice sandwich and a cuppa after and then toddled off him with strict instructions to take it easy. No one trying to shovel you out the door etc.

I have an appointment in 6 weeks to see my Pain Consultant too see how well this has worked and what the next step will be.

    Oh dear, not a trumpet involuntary? :shock: :oops: You poor girl, how embarrassing - I am so pleased you can't see me grinning! :) I am glad it's done and that at least 50% of them were OK. Now you rest up my lovely, these things can take it out of one and I hope you soon start to feel their benefit. DD

    Thanks DD. Yep a full blown trumpton. I nearly died but I couldn't do a thing about it. I'm sure it must happen to others but he was injecting my lower back at the time.

    Thank god it wasn't smelly :mrgreen:

    Well, I'm glad 1/2 of it went OK and I guess they deserved the 'trumpet involuntary' (Nice one, DD :lol: ) for hurting you with the other half.

    Now, get Mr Fols into the kitchen and you rest up with a glass of something nice.

    Thank you everyone. I'm actually having a really bad back ache now but he did say that could happen so I must be good and rest.

    Hoping this works cos he mentioned epidural next time (I thought that's what this was :?: ).

    Very tired so gonna go bed early and I don't have to get up early now son has broken up for Easter. Yay!

    Just a quick update cos I feel so awful. My lower back and the top of both hips are killing me, I am hot faced and yet shivering, very tired but can't get comfy for more than half hour at most. Not sure if it's a reaction or I picked a bug up. Not very happy but hoping it will wear off soon.

    Not been trumping but tummy is strange feeling, can't describe it really. Think it was better when I had wind lol.

    Thanks for asking DD, sorry it's not a cheery post. Fingers crossed back on form tomorrow.
