Has anyone had or know epidural steroid injections used for lower abdominal pain?
 
If anyone has any infomation regarding pain blocks for lower abdominal pain, I would really appreciate any information.
 
Thanks.

Yes, I do. My grandmother had several after she had surgery for intestinal cancer. She was very pleased about them. The pain was nearly gone, sometimes for six weeks, sometimes for six months, although in all honesty I must add that I think she overestimated herself after those first six weeks and did some silly things.

It didn't help me much but there's a perfectly good explanation for that; the epidural probably didn't have too much effect due to my body being accustomed to most kinds of medication by now (I'm a physical wreck being kept on its feet by a horde of eager doctors).

My grandmother nor I experienced any side effects.

It's good to hear that someone has had good response from this procedure.
 
I had the procedure on Tuesday, its now Friday and the pain is much much worse.  They said it could take 72 hours to feel the effect but I can honestly say that I was better off before.  I guess I'm also extremely disappointed, and other options to control the pain seem worse and there arent many anyway.  I'm feeling horribly depressed from all this and feel completely hopeless.

Have you personally found any procdure or medication that has helped you even temporarly?  Have you been able to manage some of the pain you have?
