Second Thoracic Epidural

Jerome001Jerome001 Cocoa Beach, FloridaPosts: 319

I had my first (in a very long time) thoracic epidural a few weeks ago and, to my surprise, it seems to have helped with my thoracic pain level. I had a telemedicine follow-up last week so I'm going in this afternoon for my second thoracic epidural. The doctor insists on sedation for thoracic epidurals so no eating or drinking for a long time now so I'm getting rather grouchy! :) Over the years I've had no luck with epidurals but perhaps this doctor has the touch. I truly hope that I get as much relief from today's epidural as I did the previous one. I hope everyone is staying safe and not going to stir crazy being shut in. Have a good day, Jerome

  • @Jerome001 Good luck this afternoon! Please keep us posted on how it goes. 

    I’m glad the one a few weeks ago helped. 

    Oh I know all about fasting before the injections. 

    I actually had them scheduled after work each time. 

    So I had to work a whole shift four different times on no food or drink before each injection. 

    Was like torture!

    I had the sedation as well. I didn’t even ask for it.

    Sore and tired after the epidural. Hopefully, more positive results. I appreciate your thoughts. Jerome

    Soreness is mostly gone but I'm not going to say most of the pre-epidural pain is gone until a few days have past. But, I'm thinking positive thoughts!!

    Thanks for the positive thoughts. My thoracic pain does seem better and certainly less intense. The doctor that did these two epidurals is obviously very skilled and knowledgeable. I am very thankful for her! Hope everyone is doing okay. Jerome
