For years I have had to live with constant pain in my back, hips and legs due to a degenerative condition. There were days when I could barely walk. Times when my leg would give out, or be numb to the point that I would stumble because I didn't lift my foot high enough off the ground.
The last year or so I've had to grab shopping carts in order to make it through the store. The last time I went to St. Augustine the baby stroller came to my rescue. Finally I have some relief! My doctor started me on cortisone shots in my spine and I felt a big difference after the first one. Today I had number two.
I've even started getting some decent sleep again! I can only have three shots a year so I'm hoping I can skip next week and bank it for later. I know surgery is down the line but for now I'll take the shots and gladly.
What a difference, not to have some kind of pain every day. Whoohoo!!!
