I've been struggling with crippling knee pain for almost 2 years now. I finally got an appointment with the chronic pain clinic here in Winnipeg. They want to do a nerve block on my femoral and my sciatic nerves starting tomorrow.
Has anybody ever had one before? I'm scared it's going to hurt a lot. I know in terms of the pain I'm in now it shouldn't be much but I'm really nervous! They're telling me I'm going to get an IV and I HATE ivs! Then they're going to numb the front part of my leg then another needle to inject the medicines for the nerve block. Then they're going to do it all over again on the backside of that leg.
The hope is that once they block the nerve from sending signals then the pain will decrease and I'll be able to get some mobility back again. Maybe for the first time in nearly 2 years I'll be able to walk again.
I'm just super nervous and scared about tomorrow...
