Can you swing after an epidural injection?

My daughter had an L5 epidural cortisone injection today. Can she go swing outside, or is that a bad idea?

Thank you!

    I haven't had this injection but members here have said that they were told to keep to light activities for the rest of the day. I don't think using a swing would be called a light activity. She could fall. Like Ron said you need to speak to the doctor for a definitive answer, but I would err on the side of caution unless he says it is okay.
