Today I had a Cervical ESI and Facet injections.
They went over post op stuff before procedure but didn't give me any info to take home.
So basically I forgot what the hell they told me.
All I remember is not to take a shower for 24 hrs and a bath for 72.
There was something about hot or cold pack. Can't remember.
Of course they are closed when I got home and took a 4 hour nap.
Which brings me to my other question. I could not ask anybody because I was so drugged up.
But when I was in recovery I woke up fine until the pain kicked in.
They gave me a shot of demerol and phenergan. Within seconds the pain was gone and my hand where the IV was broke out and swole up bad.
So she gave me a shot of Benadryll.
I felt like a zombie. What happend?
That's 3 drugs at once in an IV that all slow you CNS. Did someone mess up?
