Hello Spiney friends,
I get to go get an ESI in the morning. I am NOT at all excited by this. I have never experienced relief from an esi. But I am trying to keep a positive approach going into this one. As most of you know I have experienced more pain and in different areas since my fusion at L4/5. My pm seems to think much of my problem stem from nerve pain or scar tissue. I did experience some relief after a medrol pak. I am a little hopeful a series of esi in the right place may alleviate some of the inflammation that must be going on back there. My dread lies in the procedure itself since there are now more obstacles (rods) in place. But thank god for drugs!!
Have a great day,
