Sorry you are in pain I have been doing this local anesthetic injection, started in Australia, of 3 drugs recently where people are sitting in the recovery room asking if they had surgery or not lifting their legs and bending their knees with 2 out of 10 pain. If you have another one ask your MD for the local anesthetic cocktail injection.
