Question from a caregiver about first epidural injection
My husband has 5 herniated discs. He went for his first epidural steroid injection recently. His pain has increased immensely, and the injection took place 3 weeks ago.
We know that it's common for pain to increase for something like 3 days following the injection, and then subside. But this pain is worse than his baseline, worse than it was before he went in. He has no other symptoms.
Has anyone else had this experience after your first injection? Have you decided whether or not to get a second?? Thanks.
