I had an epidural injection this morning between T8 and T9 at the hospital on an out-patient basis. The doctor injected me on the right side first (it should ave been the left side). He realized the mistake and then did another injection on the left side where it was supposed to be done. It really hurt when it was injected on the left side so I'm assuming that was done correctly. He did tell me about the mistake when he was done and then did an extra chest xray. He said everything looked fine. Does anyone know if there are any problems that can occur when the epidural is injected on the wrong side or anything that I should be aware of regarding this?
