Lumbar disc herniation regression after successful epidural steroid injection

The ozone-oxygen mixture was produced in real-time by a medical ozone generator (Ozonline E 80, Medica srl, Bologna Italy). The concentration of the gas mixture was approximately 40 µg O 3 / ml O 2 and a quantity ranging between 5 to 10 ml were injected into each indicated level. Between the syringe and the needle, a bacteriological Millipore filter was positioned before infiltrating the gas mixture inside the disc space. The ozone-oxygen mixture was released inside the disc space at an approximate rate of 10 ml/min. The gas mixture inside the disc space was visible on fluoroscopy. Gas was observed diffusing through the disc space and through the herniation. The patient was kept for overnight observation and discharged the next morning. Return to work was permitted 7 days after the procedure. The mean time to complete the procedure was approximately 15 minutes.

Clinical trials are research studies in which new treatments—drugs, diagnostics, procedures, and other therapies—are tested in people to see if they are safe and effective. Research is always being conducted to improve the standard of medical care. Information about current clinical trials, including their eligibility, protocol, and locations are found on the web. Studies can be sponsored by The National Institutes of Health (NIH), , as well as private industry and pharmaceutical companies, .

I had microdiscectomy for L5S1 on 1/5/2012. I had back pain in in back and numbness in left leg and foot. other people told me that the numbness was gone when they came to after their surgery. Not in my case and over 4 months later it continues on the left leg and foot and now feeling numbness in the right leg and foot after occupational PT. Started felling jolt in back and legs a few weeks after PT started. Then got a jolt a couple of weeks ago that went down both legs. couldn’t sleep until I took my Hydrocodon at 3 AM. That’s when the right back, leg and foot issues started and are getting worse. Like you, I was on Gabapentin which only seemed to make the sensation in my leg and foot change more quickly but never go away. Went to doctor today and am being sent for an MRI and nerve testing. It’s frustrating as you know. I’ve been out of work as well. Boring and depressing. WC nurses, doctor, and PT people say the nerve issues can go on for a long time. Its all new to me so I’m trying to have faith in what they tell me. I will try to update after the MRI and nerve test. My guess is, by the way the right side feels, is that something is wrong on that side now. Hitting 50 has sucked.
