My First Shot

Yesterday morning I got my first Cortisone shot in my back. I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about getting it and how much it was going to hurt, sticking that needle into my spine. It was easy,pain free except when I got the shot to numb me and quick. I was on the table only about 10 minutes and I was done. I was told it would take up to 48 hours to start feeling any benifits from the shot, I noticed a reduction in my leg pain in a couple of hours and when I got up this morning the pain was quite a bit less. Hopefully it will work, I have one more shot coming in July.
