I'm getting and ESI (epidural steroid injection) on Wednesday. I am going into this knowing that only 50% percent of people get pain relief from this. I have spinal stenosis at L3/L4 and SEVERE facet arthritis in my entire lumbar spine. I know this won't help my facet arthritis much but I'm hopeful that it will help the leg/calf/foot pain and weirdness I've had for the past 4 years (due to the L3/L4 spinal stenosis). (I was told that a laminectomy is in my near future...getting 2nd and 3rd opinions on that...and trying to avoid that surgery till November).

They advise to stay away from work after getting the injection. Has anyone gone back to a sit down job immediately after getting the injection? Any feedback on this ESI process would be greatly appreciated!
