This one hurt a bit more than the last. He went higher in the neck as he thought, after taking all the pictures, that that was where the main problem was coming from that was hurting my back so much. He thought if we could alleve the pain there, it would stop radiating into my back. He said we may need to do one more round.
The problem with this part of the neck is it is harder to get to. I just kept thinking to myself, "Please don't miss." They kept telling me I was doing really good and I was thinking that I was more concerned that the doctor was doing really good. I couldn't understand how someone couldn't do really good. Like anyone would move when someone is sticking a needle into your spine. Apparently, it does happen. I don't move a muscle as I just want it over.
So far so good. The pain is better than it was when I went in. That was better than it was when I went the first time. He said that it could be a three step process. To be pain free, I may have to go once more.
Right now, I have full range of motion of my neck. My back is still sore, but not like it was. I am planning to ride on Friday so we will see what happens then. Keeping fingers crossed that this works
The scale went down again today. I am so close to the 160's. Just half a pound away. I've been eating a lot of fish and turkey. For exercise, I have been getting in a lot of walks with young dog. These are not normal walks. This are calorie burning walks especially the training part. Hoping to get to those 160's on Friday when I weigh in.
