For those of you who have not had a selective root nerve block... You sit around for a half-hour, go back to admitting, and answer a bunch of stupid questions for a half-hour. Wait for the radiologist for a half-hour. Talk to him, wait another half-hour. Then they put you face down under this gargantuan fluoroscope, sterilize your back (make sure you don't look at the infectious waste bucket with the 4" long needles in it) local anesthetic in two sites (the freaking stung like hell) and then they drive two needles down into your back and inject a steroid and an anesthetic (god damn that hurt like geebus). Then you sit around for another hour to make sure you don't die, and you go home. Glad I could share.
