As far as non-surgical therapies go, this one isn’t too bad. Unlike the hospital system that did my back injections, the Cleveland Clinic treats this like surgery with an IV, sedation, and BP and EKG monitors affixed the entire time. The actual procedure took, maybe, 5 minutes. Check in and setup took over an hour.
I’m not overly optimistic, but figured I owed it to myself to try this. I will say that I felt virtually no pain on the left side (only treated one side) for the first 6 hours post-procedure, so I hear that’s a good sign. The short-term analgesic appears to be wearing off, but am hopeful that the slower-acting steroid kicks in and helps more permanently.
Seemed like a reasonable approach to try all things considered.
