Hello There. So my situation is that I have a disc prolapse at L3-L4 and L5-S1.
I was hospitalized for 11 days and the pain wasn't going and I was not able to walk. Therefore I decided to take an Epidural injection. The doctor gave me two epidurals - one at L4 and one between L3 and L4.
There has been no pain improvement whatsoever and infact I am finding it little difficult to walk. Its been 6 days since the Epidural injection.
It is interesting to note that somedays I feel the pain has reduced while somedays it has increased. I am doing my exercises regularly. However, I am avoiding those exercises which are straining my back.
My question is - Is this pain permanent? Will it worsen as it happens in some of the cases?
Is there any way to reverse the effect, as in suck out the epidural which was injected inside?
What do you people suggest I do? Thanks.
