What are your stories? I just received my first one yesterday, and it was not pleasant at all- my sedation didn't kick in until an hour after the procedure, the lidocaine didn't actually numb me (but I have EDS and we're known for not responding to local anaesthetic), and I felt everything. I went into shock. My pulse rate jumped to 210 and my blood pressure dropped to 50/30. I woke up in my recovery room a few minutes later next to a fan, wet cloth on the back of my neck, nurse repeatedly checking my blood pressure, and my pain management doctor standing in the doorway asking where the color in my face went.
Percocet killed a good portion of the pain for the rest of the day, but all I could think when I woke up this morning was, "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA OW."
What are your experiences with LESIs? What did you get it for? Did they ultimately help your pain? How long did your relief last? Do you plan on getting another one?
