"Pain relief for scoliosis"

About: Nuffield Hospital Oxford (the Manor)

(as the patient),

I had an epidural injection on 26 February which was supposed to help my back pain however it did not help at all. I went to see the consultant a couple of weeks later and he said that another nerve block injection would be given to me as previously in 2007.

I had the nerve block injection on 7 April however I believe this was given on the opposite side of the spine to that given last year, I thought they would have checked this information before giving me the injection. The injection worked last year well however the injection this year stopped working after a couple of days, I am now having to take painkillers again.
