The surgery to remove the cyst in my wrist is going on the back burner for now. My rheum doc referred me to pain management. Went last week. Doctor is great. Understood my need to try non-narcotic ways to treat my pain. Suggested "cervical facet injections" they do it under sedation. And they do the right and left side on separate visits about a week apart. I am hopeful and grateful that someone is offering me some suggestions instead of my rheum doc just saying that "without opiates my hands are tied" Damn doctors only know how to write scripts. I avoiding the whole pain management thing for all these months thinking they were just gonna write scripts. Now I am thinking differently. Maybe this can help someone else out there struggling with pain.
Hope everyone is staying in the fight.
