Post Injection



  • I have to go back to work the following day after the epideral.I lift in the wearhouse.Is tht ok???Should I wear a lifting belt or any suggestions to give me support so i dont damage Disk any further??
  • i think you should rest for 2-3 days after the injection. i am still in pain 9 days after the epidural. my 1st injection was good, i dont know what went wrong with thiis one but I dont think you should go back to a lifting job belt or no belt the very next day

  • definitely no lifting and should take it easy for atleast 7 days and some simple PT. The first shot you will definitely feel the difference so do not over do it. The second has seem to be hit and miss for most.

    Have you explained to your boss your condition? You really should be on real light duty in the warehouse.

  • All the pain I am getting is in the thigh and upon researching, I found that the thigh Pain is L4L5 but my disc is herniated at L5S1. All the symptoms before the injection were correct but after the injection now I have terrible thigh pain. Wondering if the doctor ESI's the wrong level and hurt something there?
  • I have herniated L5S1 & most of my pain is in my thigh & hip.EMG showed irritated nerve-not damaged. Also had my 2nd ESI today & doc hit the nerve-very painful. (My 1st one was a piece of cake.) It eased off some after a few minutes, but felt like there was a tight band around my thigh. I had pain when I stood & walked, so I used my TENS unit for about an hour. No more pain!
