... Same here - I have that kind of luck except with the lottery - same as you! LOL Which is why I am so nervous about the surgery. Keep second guessing myself even though I know it is the right thing to do. (51 replies)
... Figures that we're in the "20%" of the population that is lucky enough to have more pain. (And for me the numbness and tingling is still there.) I have a knack for being in "1 in a million" situations, in everything except winning the lottery that is! :) (51 replies)
... Glad to hear the procedure itself wasn't too uncomfortable for you. I too had more pain after (my Dr told me that happens in 20% of the patients) ?? I hope this works for you!!! (51 replies)

... I was not put too sleep (had mine 3/14/07) they used the topical numbing that was mentioned earlier, however, they still wanted someone to drive me home. I had worse pain after the procedure (which I thought wasn't possible) for two weeks or so. It has helped a bit but I still have pain/numbness and am scheduled for an ACDF next thursday the 19th. Needless to say I am... (51 replies)
... I was usually sore for a couple of days. It took about a week for the relief to pain to happen when it worked and lasted almost 6 months. Other times they failed to provide relief at all. (51 replies)
... 1. NO - You can not drive yourself home. The twilight sleep they put you in makes you loopy (the equivalent to driving drunk). They will not release you unless you have a driver. The place I went would not even start the procedure unless you have a driver. 2. I was advised to return to normal activities the day after. 3. Yes, as they are blood thinners you are... (51 replies)
... Hi,I go at the end of this month for one of those. So I dont know yet and I would like to know more about it. My doctor said it could last 3 years for pain relief I dont know how true that is but I hope so. So I figure why not I will try it sure beats surgery. I wonder how long afterwards I will be sore? How soon do you feel better? (51 replies)
... WOW.. you are lucky only 25:00..my co part was 600.00...I think the total cost was around 3000.00 I had mine done at the pain clinic. It was like going into outpatient surgery. I had a gown IV.. Nurse working with Doctor afterwards I was placed into a room to recover...(wakeup) I do know he used something to help guide him some Type of X ray camera or something. So he was... (51 replies)
... Wow... I only have to pay $25 and he is doing it in his office. I just have a fear of needles so I kinda getting nervous about feeling the pain. Did anyone ever get asked if they were allergic to shellfish? I have been reading some sights about making sure you tell your doctor. (51 replies)
... It really depends on your PM Doc. If you go twilight, you need a driver, and that is the way I did it 7 x. I have a client who has PM doc who just injects a topical numbing needle first, and then he drives home. DR did it in his office! I have a PPO and my total copay for 1st series was $2300 local outpatient from community hospital. Next series done at teaching... (51 replies)
... I am 100% positive they will NOT allow you to drive home. I have had a bunch of these types of injections and they wont allow it. Sorry. (51 replies)
... Thanks you guys! I hope its the same for me. (51 replies)
... Some encouraging words given to me, thanks. My biggest fear of the whole thing is how much pain I am going to be in during this injection? I have a phobia of needles anyway. No matter how scared or nervous they will not be giving me anything because I am on w/c. I think we would run a close race in who is the biggest worrier, I worry about every little thing too. My husband... (7 replies)
... I was also scared of the ESI, and my orthopedic doc. would not use anything either, so I wouldn't do it. My new doctor who works at a pain management clinic talked me into getting one, and also used a light sedative, and I was drowsy for a little while after, but it really helped me relax. Either way.. just remember that it is an injection, and it will be over really fast. (7 replies)
... The symptoms you describe are not normal. There can be some pain and shock initially when the injection is done, but it should subside quickly. ... (7 replies)

... Should I go ahead with the steroid injection on Friday, or wait the additional weeks for the famous Dr.'s opinions? ... (3 replies)
... I had 3 lumbar epidurals and one cervical epidural. I had the lumbar injection's in my doctor's pain management office but the cervical one had to be done in the pain management at the hospital. All of these injection's did not give me any pain relief but instead caused me more pain. ... (13 replies)
... I had fairly similar symptoms and a not entirely different MRI report, and my cervical issues were treated successfully with one epidural injection. I had far less numbness, but I was dropping things, like a bottle of shampoo or a salt shaker. ... (23 replies)
