Cord block question

Hello again brothers. I got another cord block last week. Overall fairly positive however my left side is significantly swollen and theres a knot at the injection site. Can chronic nerve damage or swelling occur after a cord block?

I’ve heard of bruising and hematomas after a nerve block.

Did they add steroids or botox to the block, or was it anesthetic only?

I suppose nerve damage is possible with a nerve block, but you might just be having a reaction to the anesthetic or steroid.

I think it was @jason who had a nerve block and was in a lot of extra pain for a few weeks and then it settled down.

Good luck

Thanks! Yeah that makes sense. Hard to imagine a cord block having long term damage even with my bad luck so thats reassuring. Thanks!
