Angel_baby Posted July 30, 2008 Share Posted July 30, 2008 I had a Medial Branch Pain Block Procedure (needles stuck into spine) done on my lower right side of my back on the 20th of this month. It took sometime to heal but everything is not as sore and almost back to normal... everything that is except where he stuck one of the needles there is this big knot/lump. I had 3 needles stuck into my spine and into the nerve. They then sent volts through the needles to "numb" the nerve for about a year. The needles are about 3 inches long, though I doubt he sticks it all the way in... I don't know. Anyway the other 2 injection sites healed up fine. But this one... it started off as a little tiny bump and now it is the size of 2 fingertips and is rock hard. It is only a little sore but it keeps growing. Which is starting to make it more sensitive and sore. I do have bruising around the area they stuck the needles in but that is to be expected.... Do you guys think this is normal????? Link to comment
