@hosta. You should see a difference in your pain level after the anesthesia is gone, in an hour or so. They will call you the next day and ask how long it lasted. That will determine if they continue with the series. At least that is what they told me.

@hosta You should not be so frighten! They do this all the time. It is quite safe. If it is going to work, you should see some ease in your pain soon after the procedure. How much do you know about your doctor? Do you trust him (her)? Trust in your doctor is 3/4 of the battle. Have Faith in the doctor and in God!

Hello, @karolyn, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! Thank you for posting.

I would like to introduce you to @hosta, who has had this procedure done before and will hopefully offer some insight with you. Can you share how and why this decision was made with your provider? What kind of pain are you in?
