Does it matter which side of your spine the epidural injections are on?
I recently (yesterday) had the first of three epidural steroid injections in my L5/S1. 100% of my pain is in my right side in my lower back and just above my right buttock.
However, when I went in for my ESI yesterday, they kept saying Left lower lumbar injection??
Does it matter which side the injection is administered on? If so, I just wasted one of my three injections. But how would the doctor not know this when I've told him half a dozen times that my pain is on the right side?
