Personal Pain Reduction
For those of you following the saga of my back pain and nerve root cyst, I am now nine days out from having had my first spinal injection of corticosteroids. I'm happy to report that I am subjectively experiencing an approximately 30% reduction in pain over the last two days, and have hopes that the symptoms will lessen even more over the coming week. The injections sometimes take up to 14 days to take effect---for reasons unbeknownst to me---and I can attest that on day seven my symptoms began to diminish. Stay tuned, and thanks for the many well wishes.
