Had my first lumbar epidural steroid injection today. I went to OrthoArkansas and was very pleased with the care I received. The anthesiologist came out and talked to me a long time before I had it. She said that most of the time it does take more than one injection. Also, they give you laughing gas like at the dentist office instead of IV sedation...I really liked that! She said shse gives the injection while doing an x-ray so that she knows exactly where the problem is.

She said that it takes between three to ten days to start to feel results. I go back to Dr. Slater on the 17th.....hopefully pain free and will be able to go back to work!
