Anytime you get an epidural it should start working very soon after you have it done. It usually does get worse before it gets better through the course of physical therapy and other ways of strengthening your injury. Best of luck with all of this!

Thank you Susie. I have been doing back exercises several times daily, and some walking when possible. Also been doing some swimming at my local YMCA.
