Using fluoroscopic guidance (real time x-ray), the doctor proceeds with the procedure and places the needle tip at the target area. The doctor confirms the needle tip is properly positioned visually and fluoroscopically. He then injects a small amount of contrast (dye) to ensure correct spread. Next, a low volume anesthetic / corticosteroid solution is injected. Rarely is pain increased during the injection. However, our medical team is dedicated to making you as comfortable as possible. A small Band-Aid covers the injection site.

I had three injections all of which worked for a few days to two weeks then stopped. The excruciating pain returned and only Vicoden 5 mg 3-4 times a day controlled the pain. Vicoden at that dose is the lowest dose prescribed. it worked perfectly for several years and doctors refused to prescribed opioids for fear of losing their license. My sister recently died of throat cancer and she complained constantly of pain. She died with unrelieved pain. As a cancer patient she was prescribed Morphine 2 mg. every 6 hours. That is beyond ridiculous but keeps our doctor’s license safe. Our doctors are violating their Hippocratic oath – Do No Harm. They had added a caveat “except when the government is breathing down your neck. Then the patient be damned. I am glad this helped you Randy. I don’t know your clinical status but I am sure it differs from mine. Do you have severe and crippling arthritis?
