Thank you for posting your query.

I feel there is no need to worry regarding your procedure- bilateral lumbar facet injections.

Inflammation of the chest wall- do you mean costo chondritis. Again, it is a minor issue and there is no need to worry.

You will feel much better after the procedure.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
