Got the injection today at a surgical center. I didn’t know it was such a big deal, but apparently it is. It wasn’t a pleasant experience; they had to give me an IV of some kind of tranquilizer to get me through it. One the way out, a nurse told me, “If you have to come back for another injection, ask for the IV right off to help you calm down.” If I have to come back? I certainly hope not! No immediate relief; the surgeon said it would take 3-5 days or so.
