Groomer - funny you mention that because even though I have no fear of needles or shots, the thing I've dwelled on the most recently when thinking about this is the guy missing the spot!
z71, if I could get 7 years out of a couple shots, I would do a backflip (well, not literally...) That's an excellent result.
I am praying for this to work. These past three weeks have been the worst of my life and have nearly broken me. The frustration and pain is unbearable.
Maybe we should start a new thread for "Backpain" - probably get a decent response based on this.
