Work day after injections?

I am having a L5-S1 injection both left and right side on May 29 late afternoon. I am wondering if I should take off May 30 at the daycare I work. I care for 7 one -two year olds so its very busy and I lift the kids alot. Do you think I will have some pain and should take it easy the next day? Thanks

    You may want to take off the next day and relax. You definitely don't want to be bending or lifting.

    Good luck, I hope the procedure helps.

  • I very much think you should. There are things known as cortisone flares that may occur 24-48 hours after your shot. Basically, your pain increases. The first set of injections I had, my pain was MUCH worse for about two days after. You'll be glad you took the day off.
