Re: Yesterday I had medial nerve branch block in the left lumbar area

I have had two rounds of this, and the first round I got no relief from the first injection, so they did not do anymore. The next time I got relief after the first injection that lasted about 4 weeks. The next injection lasted about 2 weeks and the 3rd and last one gave me no relief. I am sorry aobut having to tell you that, but you may have better luck. I have heard others who have had longer term relief and I hope that is the same for you. I am glad it did not hurt as bad as you thought. I remember it being the same for me. I was sure I needed to take something to relax me and I was still nervous. Then, when they did it, it really was nothing.

Good luck and keep us posted.
Lorie
