Steroid Injections

Friday, November 04, 2011

I had a procedure for my back yesterday. It is called facet joint rhizotomy. They burned the nerves to the facet joints on my lower back. Also they injected me with steroids, so I am pretty pain free today. But the steroids usually make me really hungry! And gain weight.

I was up to 160.2 today, but am going to be really careful not to overeat!

    Hi Sandy, I hate that you have to go through this. But you seem to have it under control, knowing how to work with whatever your circumstances are is a wonderful thing, the main thing is that you are not in any pain.

    Stay focused on your goal, emoticon emoticon I am rooting for you! emoticon

    Oh my goodness, that does not sound like much fun! I had steroid injections many years ago and I gained a ton of weight afterward, which unfortunately has stuck with me! I wish you the best of luck dealing with the hunger and sorry you had to go through this!

    My daughter has had a kidney transplant. She has to take steroids every day. She has lost 30 pounds. I know how hungry she gets. Hang in there.
