Hi Lisa!

Glad you seem to be getting some relief from the injection! I've heard that if you get a little relief the first time, you're supposed to get more the 2nd! I sure hope it's true for both of us!!

I had a caudal epidural injection yesterday...almost exactly 24 hours. Don't want to get my hopes up, cuz they say 72 hours is a better test of the first relief... but, I think it's going to help my tailbone throbbing pain. And...perhaps the tenderness in pubic bone, too. I hope, I hope, I hope! :angel:

I, too, have other pains...right hip, right And left lumbar, and nerve stuff...but, HEY if I can get one of my issues dealt with? YIPPEE! :)

When is your next injection scheduled for? Keep me posted!

Karen

Hi Lisa!

I couldn't remember which thread I was in when that was happening earlier. Well... THank Goodness the doctor Called me back!!!! NOT :mad: [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif[/img] I still have numb toes...and spasm in back (after taking flexeril). I laid down after I'd called the Clinic...and it seemed to ease up a bit. I was lucky - both my girls took a nice afternoon nap! Doesn't usually work that way. But, since I've been doing dinner, cleaning up, getting girls ready for bed, it's acting up.

I'm just going to call in am!

Thanks for replying! :)

Karen
