ESI for leg pain

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,000
I used to get ESI's every 3 or 4 mos. and got huge relief from my leg pain (anterior thigh on down through feet - both sides). Then had laminectomy and ended up much worse than pre-surgery.

I'd like to go back to ESI's, but just before last one over a year ago, had a test for osteoporosis and have it in the area of the ESI's (L4/L5). Does anyone know anything about whether the ESI can contribute to osteoporosis at the site of the injections? I'd have them forever (and probably would need to - I'm almost 60 but my mom is almost 99 - I may live another 40 years!) - but worry about long term effects of the ESIs.....

I appreciate any info! Thanks to all! Rosa
