Going to have injection

Carole - caroleh@mail.aoc.state.ky.us

I broke my tailbone on February 20, 2002. According to my x-rays, it is at a 90 degree angle and will stay that way.

The everyday pain is wearing me out mentally and physically. Some days it is a dull pain, some days sharp, everyday there is pain. This injury has truly been life altering for me.

Mid-July, I finally went to a pain management doctor and he suggested an inter-ganglion injection (I believe that is the correct term). It basically means shooting a numbing agent into the fibers that my tailbone are hanging by. I'm not sure how long it will last but I'm at the point that even temporary relief of this pain will be worth it.
