Hi! I hope this is the right forum to post these questions. 12 days ago I had 4 FJI's to try to resolve my chronic pain. Before the procedure I was on a 50mcg fent patch every 72 hours w/5mg percs for b/t pain. Since the local anesthesia wore off, I have had some of the worst pain in my back (while still taking same dose of meds). Then the pain seemed to be calming down a few days ago so I left my patch on for another day (total 96 hours). BIG mistake. Now I'm back to the same pain and frustration as I had before the injections. Did I not wait long enough for the injections to take effect?
If you've had an FJI or ESI or something along those lines, how did you figure out if they worked or not? Is it too soon to call my PM doc and tell him what's going on?
I'd appreciate any and all advice!
Thank you for reading.
