Hi gang . Busy. Suffering lol.im getting 2 esi injections into s1 bi laterally Monday morning . Started lyrica which can take weeks to work . Low pain med. I'm worried if this injection doesn't work I will be on disability forever when I go on oh I've had similar injections last year with no success . So any wisdom or advice is always appreciated . My hope all of you aren't struggling .

Rinoguy, I've had them and the first one was painful, but the others worked very good. I made sure to ice the injx site on & off for 24 hours, and stayed PFD my feet 48, except for eating and bathroom breaks. I hope your's goes well. I'll say a prayer for you. 🙏🌼
