Can anyone tell me what a "wet tap" is? I had 2 ESI's yesterday and at first was leaking blood but now am leaking fluid from the injection sites. Yesterday I had the spinal headache and started running a temp - it got to 102.1 last night. I called my doc and he said not to worry, that the temp is just a reaction between my titanium hardware and the steroids and should go away in a few days. He also said not to worry about the fluid leaking unless it continues more than 3 days. I've never leaked fluid before and don't want to overreact but at the same time, I am having a lot more pain and I am a little concerned. There has been enough fluid leaking to form crusty spots on my clothes. (I know that sounds disgusting - sorry) Has anyone else experienced this type of thing from an ESI?
