low back pain

I am having a epidural on friday, and i am nott going to be put asleep.  I am scared to death.  I had one in 2016 and never went back to get the other.  But I was put to sleep.  the Pain Management doctor say he is giving me  two valium pills.  I am afraid that I will feel the pain

    It’s like an assembly line. They’re professionals. And you’ll be doped up. No worries.

    hi reeder19

    Welcome to Veritas Health Forum

    please try not to worry.  i managed 5 injections on one visit, one of which was an epidural.  i only had light sedation and local anaesthetic injections for the injection sites.

    i have added two links below to help new members with information and these also contain the forum rules.  there is lots of material to research that will give you the power of knowledge.

  • Why didn't you go back for the second one? The reason I am asking, I am having my first one on the 12th of April with no sedation.
