What can I expect from facet joint injections?

My spouse is having facet joint injections later this week in an attempt to relieve a chronic pain condition. Most of what I have read about this procedure seems really terrifying, and my spouse is pretty freaked out about the procedure.

For those of you who are familiar with this, what can I expect? Will my spouse be able to function the next day? I'm going out of town the day after the procedure and I'm not sure if I should be worried about leaving Spouse alone.

If anyone has had this done, I am really interested in your account of the procedure, the recover and if it was effective. My email is in my profile if you don't want to post icky medical details on the green.
