Really glad you went in to the doc and got checked out. I hope the injection works and can bring some relief. The ones that I had, did help. Also if it doesn't work, don't be ashamed to ask for more in the way of pain medication.
Vicoden is good, but can be bumped up for periods of time. I did ask for more help and my doctor was wonderful to me. There will be healing, just believe it can all become better. This is a traumatic surgery, and it just takes some time. I am glad you doctor was willing to do something to help out. Let me know how it goes. Most injections you are numb before, I had no pain. ginnie
