    For "the boy dolphin", its a mere swim in the ocean.

    For others, well.....neausea, incontinence, followed by uncontrollable flatulence. In fact for many an entire evacuation of the body.

    I can truthfuly say that no one has ever actually died from this procedure but there are a great number who have wanted to.

    But for "the boy dolphin", a mere swim in the ocean.

    Ouch, that sounds painful. Since my last c-section the word “epidural” is enough to make me squirm...
    But I hope it does the trick for your lumbar region!
    I may be getting the kid’s portion in my thumb...

    Haha... but actually, the doc gave me an evaluation (which went swimmingly !) and described the procedure as NBD ,
    so I'm not worried, or even nervous right now. I'm happy that he's optimistic, and that
    it's going to be fairly cheap. Rather looking forward to it eagerly, in fact :whistling:

    Yeah, it's always been a big scary word, but this is somewhat different from that .
    He said it will not feel like much at all, and that the Lidocaine shot will be the one that stings,
    before the actual epi , so all that was a huge relief to hear.

    It's more for the leg, but if it doesn't help that, I'll take some back relief :thumb:

    My peers (friends and co-workers) get epidural shots regularly. Almost everybody over 50 around here has issues that require some sort of help.

    Except me. For me, I figure it isn't "if" it is when...

    I’ve had a bunch of those. They worked for a while. I’ve had them in my upper back neck area and my lumbar area...

    According to little bit of Google research,
    Reported side effects from epidural steroid injections include:
    • Localized increase in pain.
    • Non-positional headaches resolving within 24 hours.
    • Facial flushing.
    • Anxiety.
    • Sleeplessness.
    • Fever the night of injection.
    • High blood sugar.
    • A transient decrease in immunity because of the suppressive effect of the steroid.
    So, hopefully, not quite that bad, @Monkeyboy. Hope it does the trick for you. :thumb:
