This afternoon I saw Dr. Peña at the Seton Spine and Scoliosis Center for facet injections in the vertebra above the rods. He used Depomedrol with fluoroscopic guidance. The process was a little painful in spite of the pre-injection deadening but it wasn’t unbearable. Dr. Peña is a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation who works with Dr. Geck. He also checked out the protrusion between my shoulder blades and will discuss the fluoroscopy pictures with Dr. Geck to come to a conclusion as to what the problem is. His nurse will call me about this and tell me whom I am to follow up with.
