Facet Joint Injections - Anyone had success?
I would like to hear more about lumbar facet injections as I am scheduled to have my first on July 6th. I would also like to hear some success stories.

Yes, I had lumbar facet injections about 7 months ago. Be patient, at first I didn’t think it was a success but within 10 days I was fine. I will repeat when and if it fails. I spoke to one lady who had gone 2 years. Sometimes you need to repeat it but that’s OK too. Be positive, good luck with it. I recommend it!
DONT. I've had close to 20 injections over the years. For me…..nothing and it will lead to something more serious. I know we get desparate when we're in pain. I'm just telling you my experience, never helped.
I have had these injections they have lasted me for at least 6-7 months then I,'ll repeat but have had no side effects from them I'm due now but this last one was a year ago
