Its good to be hopeful, I don't know if im going about it right or not but im hoping my block tomorrow to put it into remission but expecting nothing of it. Trying to keep with the positive thinking and not get my hopes up all at the same time. Good luck with yours.

One injection will rarely put it into remission so please don't be surprised if the doc suggests more. And please be aware, it is only a higher possibility of remission, not a promise. We all are hoping with you. Every time a new member joins, this is our hope if they are in that first critical period. We do not want to have to see you again, but if we do, we will be with you when you need us, you will have a place to vent and people here who understand your pain.

So, I hope at the very least, the injection lowers your pain. And I hope for remission. And send a hug!

I have had problems with my knee for about 7 years, but it was not until a year ago that the pain and inflammation got so bad that I could not walk. I have been using a wheelchair for a year to get around. I just had my second lumbar sympathetic block, so far it has done little. A few hours after the block it feels a little better but goes away about three hours later. My doctor says since I have been dealing with this for so long that it may take awhile and has scheduled me to have two blocks per week for three weeks. Hope your works for you.

Has anyone else had to have many blocks before it worked?
