Hey all! I am scheduled for an epidural on January 5th. I have heard a lot of stories, good and bad about them, and just wanted your feedback. I do realize everyone is different, but just wanted to get an idea what I'm in for. :S I am going to be put to sleep, thank goodness! I) But here are my questions:
How long was your back sore after the procedure, if at all? And how bad was the pain? Could you walk, move, etc?
Did the epidural work and for how long? Mine is for back pain, which I hear epi's don't always work. They are mostly for leg pain and inflammation pain. A lot of my pain is more "bone" related, if that makes sense. My L5 S1 disk is gone, so I literally feel the "bone on bone", which then radiates out to both hips.
All your feed back (as always
) is greatly appreciated!
