gastric sleeve and back muscle spasm

i had an mri done and found 2 bulging discs. i also had gastric sleeve surgery and was told that the pain gets worse because of my depression and I am focus on the pain.. I had one epidural and RFA done, but the pain is still there.. Does anyone know ways that the pain can go away? how long does the epidural last?



  • Epidurals are often times given in a series of 2-3, a lot of times the first one does not do a lot as far as pain goes depending on how much inflammation there is, often times it takes 2-3 to get the inflammation down
