First few days after the epidural injection

I got the injection two days ago--Friday.  I began to feel gradual relief within about 6 hours and yesterday the pain was almost gone.  Now today, Sunday<(second day after the injection), the pain has returned somewhat (not as bad as was before the injection but more than the first day.  In other words, it decreased and now is returning.  Is this normal for the first two days?

    all about esi 

    esi's are usually given in sets of three (3) to reduce inflammation. everyone is different so everyone reacts different to the shots. i have had so many and only one ever worked. but, that was me. hopefully you will get more replies.

    take care and keep us posted.

  • As Sandra said injections are often times given in a series of three, it is a very good sign that you got relief on the first day, are you scheduled for any more injections?
