So I’m scheduled to have a lumbar epidural steroid injection tomorrow at Duke Raleigh Hospital. Anyone know what I should expect? I know it’ll be under local anesthesia but not much else. Would I be able to drive myself to and from the appointment?

I work the procedure room with physicians that do ESI's. The procedure usually lasts 5 to 10 minutes and is a lot less invasive than what patients think. Most patients can have this procedure done under local anesthetics people that are have a fear of needles or have high anxiety may do it under sedation. 9/10 patients that are under local anesthesia are surprised how simple it was. Good luck!

I am fairly certain I drove myself to and home from my appointment when I had the same procedure. It was really not bad at all. The nurse and physician I had were wonderful and made me feel very comfortable.

I also moved home for a year in Covid to help them out and paid rent. I love them but I’m 26 and need to start putting myself first. Am I being a dick?
