I had my first ESI about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I've had almost 2 weeks of very low pain, but it's slowly starting to hurt again a bit.
My big issue is this - the last few days I've had ((blushing, ashamed)) anal leakage. I'm only 32. At first I thought it was an isolated incident and took some Immodium. It's happened 3 more times now and I'm getting more embarrassed and more concerned. It's not a huge amount, but the fact that there is any is a concern for me.
I read on one post in here that someone had this type of reaction with an ESI. Is that possible? I don't know why that would cause it. I'm scheduled for another one on February 5th. I enjoy the pain relief, but I dislike having to embarrassedly hand over my lightly soiled clothes to my amazing husband who does our laundry.
I don't have ANY numbness or tingling in any area - I never have. I just had extreme pain and couldn't sit at all.
Do you think this is because of my protruding disc?
Antibiotics I'm on?
