... Absolutely agree with Shoreline...I was focused so much on the other issues/questions for you CMTICMTI that I wasn't paying attention to it being 10 THOUSAND but had 1 thousand in my brain.... That is absolutely crazy for that price and as mentioned, unless there was complications or anethesia or other things that are not normal...and ESI should never be close to that price! (3 replies)
... My wife has them done every 4 months at the PM office. They generally bill about 1800 bucks. The negotiated price is closer to 600. Did your child need anesthesia where an anesthesiologist had to sit in along with the doc doing the procedure, this might add a a couple grand but 10K is absurd for an ESI. Hopefully you have insurance and they have to accept whatever the pre... (3 replies)

... The first 5 epidurals I had were without conscious sedation. Not the best way. Ask your doc if this is available. The procedure is used with a local that will give you numbness for a few hours, then it will be worse for a few days, then better if it is going to help when the steroid kicks in. It is a cortico-steroid, not the type used for building muscle. It will take a... (5 replies)
