Ask your doctor for gabapentin (neurontin) to go along with your other pain meds and try the injections as well. Be careful with the injections make sure they "put you under" and use a fluoroscope so theu can see where they are pinpoint where they are injecting.
Ironically I had these injections on five different occasions as well and I was not under anasthesia just lidocaine and they hit a nerve and my left leg and arm shot in the air as they actually pierced a nerve and I was temporarily paralyzed on my left side for about 15 minutes! I have never been in more pain in my life when they hit the nerve and it has made my pain A LOT WORSE since the procedure. Hopefully the nerve will heal but it's been about a year and has not got any better since the procedure...
Wow,this thread has taken a turn.As far as ESIs go I have had my share,but I have never been put under for any of them.I'm pretty sure this is a good topic for another thread and sure would be interesting to hear of others experiences as far as that goes.My Dr (PMD) told me that he needed me awake for the procedures,but I have heard many other people who have had successful outcomes and they were put under.
never under sedation for esi.s
somewhere on here before i read about this medicine. now i can't find it on here. i really need to know about this medicine. can someone please help me? many thanks
just joined, hello! I see people questioning hydrocodone 15 or 20mg pills and their are doctors who will write scripts for this, but they are really only available in bigger cities or online (and those made me a little sick)...but they do make them (I was getting 15/325 hydrocodone)..the ones that are actually made at the pharmacies (i'm from NY) they go heavy handed on some..they know who likes what and it's rather interesting in there...
but they are really only available in bigger cities or online
Any city, big or small, may or may not have a compounding pharmacy.
As far as the ones online making you a little sick; are you surprised? If you buy them online, without a script, you are purchasing them illegally. Likewise, if you have a compound script that calls for 15 mg of hydrocodone, and the pharmacists suspects you "like" something about it- the pharmacist, by law, must put 15mg of hydrocodone in the preparation, or else the pharmacist is breaking the law.
Maybe Rawoody's conversion chart should become a sticky, and have replies disabled?
