I'm going for my second epidural and facet joint injections tomorrow. Hopefully will be as painless as the first one. The second set were a bit more uncomfortable. Prayers and well wishes would be great. Thank you. Charry

She told me she can give me up to 6 ESI's but I don't think I'm going for that many....
DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing c-spine c4-c7 RN


  • I hope you are as pleased with the results today as you were the first time. Do you know how many facet joints they will be doing??

  • sending prayers your way that the injections will relieve your pain and that you will be relaxed while recieving the injections without pain!

    I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers today! Let us know how you are when you feel up to posting!

    I'm sorry I wasn't here to wish you luck before your injections. I'm so glad that it all went well again. I hope it continues to help you and that you won't have to have many more. Take it extra easy for a few days. You've had a lot of injections today so keep using ice on and off. I hope you're not very sore tomorrow.
    Take care and have a good night.
  • I hope you are feeling better! Wow, so many injections and without sediation. God bless you!
    Those caudal epidurals are awfully painful, i have had 5 and 4 were with sediation. You are a strong woman.
    Take care and I hope you have a good restful night sleep.

    Just wanted to check and see how you are this morning? Did you sleep okay? Are you terribly sore?

    Hope the injections work for you.
