Another ESI today - wish me luck...

This is my 4th. I hate them, they don't work. I always have MORE pain afterwards. I have to have sedation b/c the pain at the injection site is unbearable if I don't.

I am waiting on a discogram to be scheduled to see if my disk(s) are actually causing my pain. So I guess this is just another "temp. fix" by Dr.

*sigh*, I am so sick of back pain!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for letting me vent

Re: Another ESI today - wish me luck...

I'm back. I think the procedures have been spread out around 12-16 months. I can't remember much right now - I am still groggy from sedation. I don't know why he keeps recommending them. I am once again in pain. Ice pick in the back, electricity down my leg and another ice pick in my ankle. Geez, will it ever stop!

Thanks for your support - its so nice to "talk" with someone that understands the situation!

I had my 3rd and final injection about a month ago. They did nothing for me, except cause more pain. I hope you have better results !
