I have the exact same thing, had an injection two weeks ago... Was told not to bow hunt and of course I am headed there in the a.m. I told the Dr. that sounds great, but I can hurt in the stand just as well as at home. I am not dead yet... Scheduled surgery aroun season...hahaha Good luck and best of wishes. Hope it all works out for you.It will be Saturday before I get in the woods. I have to get an injection in my back tomorrow!! I have a bulging disc that is bothering me but it'll be good, can't hardley wait I'm ready to smoke something with my new bow!!!!
