Discussions that mention demerol

Spinal Cord Disorders board


You can usually find some animations on epidural steroid injections (ESI) which will show you how it's done. I've had two cycles of these along with one facet injection.

The Pain Mgmt doctor I saw, who did the injections, was good and the injections were painless. I would arrive the day of, then be given an IV, and taken into the treatment room in which they gave me versed and demerol in the IV and the next thing I knew I was sitting up and walking out of the treatment room. I'd be kind of tired the rest of the day but esesntially okay.

I had a fusion last year and have one nerve that seems a bit aggravated so I may do one shot this fall.
