I've had 2 epidurals in my lumber area, one 4 mos after surgery which kept me in bed for 3 days while I continued on half a dozen pain killers including morphine, another a month later which kept me in bed for 5 days, but allowed me to stop all drugs for about a week and a half.
The pain mgm't Dr suggested another, and suggested a Tens machine but I declined both as I could not stand the pain from either.
Eleven months after surgery I went cold turkey, and have not taken any drugs since. The pain did not stop, but I stopped crying about a month ago. I am on the road to recovery.

Has anyone had a shot to the cervical spine? I'm thinking long and hard that I should get an injection to the neck first before I get an operation.
My Neurologist keeps telling me I should get it operated on, but I asked for a prescription for an epidural shot before I decide on an operation or not. John/NY

the injection wasnt bad. My back does feel better but still somewhat sore. I am a little disappointed that he didnt do bi-lateral injection like he had originally stated but i am sure that the insurance had something to do with it. I am looking forward getting back into heavy duty exercising.

emoticon I've had injections in my spine for pain relief. Some more successful than others. Relief varies so I can't make any predictions as to how you will do. The sedation helps, it is not a painful procedure, I've had one injection without sedation. Good luck and let us know how you do. Bonnie E.

go to spine-health.com they have information on anything to do with the spine. I know nothing of these injections. But this is a very informative site.

Any success stories with the facet joint injection? How long did the relief last if you received any? I'm having a bi-lateral joint injection on Friday. I will be sedate but I'm a little nervous. Any info is appreciated.
