Cervical Joint Facet Injections

I have been diagnosed with a herniated disc in C5/C6...I have already gone thru the Cervical Epidural which only made the pain worse...now on Wednesday 3/19 I am to have the Cervical Joint Facet Injections (8 total) done.  My question is this............will this one help???  I am already on Neurotin 400mg three times a day and Percocet 10/325 every 6 hours....this is NOT helping the pain what-so-ever.  I am stoned all the time but can still function (thank God)!!  They are saying about 2 weeks after this set of injections if there is still no relief, there will be one more set of injections (not sure of the name of this one tho) and then we will be looking at either a fusion or a removal of the disc.  Please help if you have any insight into these next steps.  Thanks,  Rose
