I as Patient ¨¨Comments

¨¨what I'm writing today; filter thoughts and events that are not for general publication*brief two days in pajamas expecting some call ... and help to raise again on my own feet and improve my health ..
This involves a little local anesthetic and a couple of injections with drugs in a particular area of the body..expecting freedom".

epidural steroid injections( first time)
An epidural steroid injection delivers steroids directly into the epidural space in the spine. Sometimes additional fluid (local anesthetic and/or a normal saline solution) is used to help 'flush out' inflammatory mediators from around the area that may be a source of pain.
The epidural space encircles the dural sac and is filled with fat and small blood vessels. The dural sac surrounds the spinal cord, nerve roots, and cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that the nerve roots are bathed in).

Typically, a solution containing cortisone (steroid) with local anesthetic (lidocaine or bupivacaine), and/or saline is used.(In Croatia, some other medications )

a relatively standard protocol;
  • The patient lies flat on an X-ray table or with a small pillow under their stomach to slightly curve the back. If this position causes pain, the patient can be allowed to sit up or lie on their side in a slightly curled position.
  • The skin in the low back area is cleaned and then numbed with a local anesthetic similar to what a dentist uses.
  • Using fluoroscopy (live X-ray) for guidance, a needle is inserted into the skin and directed toward the epidural space. Fluoroscopy is considered important in guiding the needle into the epidural space, as controlled studies have found that medication is misplaced in many (> 30%) of epidural steroid injections that are done without fluoroscopy.

  • You have a little dazed by drugs but have the living room in the hospital and desirable accompaniment -due to the state of mind and body after anesthesia-as well as the attention of medical personnel.

    It's stupid to look for images on the Internet that would help explain a certain procedure;action and the success depends from person to person as  on the type of disease and pain.I went through a few forums and people are just stupid conclude on this topic..
    *In my case, after a year of sick leave and the type of disease- the day after"-spreading from the spine through the thigh to knee* leg-relief*Cross ie spine-relaxed but still have to take certain drugs in certain amounts for therapy.*our Doctors do not be afraid but aid depends about damage and your Health-so me explain my own understanding of my situation and common sense .

    The success of therapy is it or not *stupid to write about-dilemmas, issues and care.*these struggles are not just my.
    The soul calmer than yesterday I try to relax *
    All people in the hallway looking for miracle of healing*

    Let's skip the subject (of improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain) brothers doctors(specialists in anesthesia, resuscitation and pain management) and my naked body in a certain position ..of these situations they make us able to talk quite serious jokes..although to me or them not to laugh.*
    / I do not have shekels to buy them all the Rolex or their Christmas bonus pay in the current account: it depends on the state administration*
    apart from the serious situation I have some little no fun ..creating tools for a particular purpose..thus trying to mend concerns.
    hey look at that little in the distance * maybe it lights up the morning light like us¨¨
    hey you little sister maybe tomorrow will be better*
