Re: Methylprednisolone ?

Awesome to hear....

I have an appt next Friday for the injection.....

Now do they give you a script after the procedure in case you have any pain afterward for the 3 days as stated that may happen?

That the only thing I am worried about is the pain stories I hear afterward before the relief

Re: Methylprednisolone ?

I'm not sure if injections to the spine are much more painful than steroid injections to the knee joint, but I've had several steroid injections to my right knee- I mean long needle being forced through the scar tissue and totally into the joint itself. The injections weren't really that bad as long as I could watch the doctor put the needle in, and afterward, he (my ortho surgeon) did prescribe like 10 vicodin 5/500 mgs just in case I needed them for the first day. I never needed them though. Motrin took care of it.

I hope injections to the spine aren't bad afterwards either. Maybe you can call the office before your appointment and ask them to speak with the doctor about it, and if not, then before he performs the injections I'm sure he will allow you to ask any last minute questions. Ask him then and be totally honest about your concerns. It's better to be prepared and have the medication if you need them, than to need them and not have them.

Please let us know how it goes.
Fingers & Toes crossed that it will not be so bad-

Re: Methylprednisolone ?

Mark...what kind of injection are you having next week? Are they doing it to your affected back areas????

I've had many injections in my back at all different levels and types...now some are VERY painful...if you are just getting trigger point shots they aren't bad at all....but the down side... sometimes the relief if any doesn't last long.

Re: Methylprednisolone ?

Thanks, sorry for the pain your have suffered and sorry that the injection didn't last as long as it should have.....Did you get a 2nd one?

I will keep you all posted I am a little scared about this precedure on Friday myself though I never even had an IV hooked up to me let alone a needle injected in my spine......So this week is going to be a rough one I think.

Thank you all for the support!

Mark

Re: Methylprednisolone ?

Yes, I had 3 injections over 6 weeks. They wore off one month after the 3rd injection. But that is just for me; for some people their pain never comes back.

Re: Methylprednisolone ?

Please post as soon as you can following your injection on Friday. I really want to know how it goes and how you feel. I have my first one scheduled for August 2nd and while I am really nervous about it, I am trying to remain optimistic that this will help.

Best of luck to you.
