Here is the situation. Six foramen epidural steroid injections in a six week stint. Patient went from 130 lbs to 105 lbs during this period and now has major gastrointestinal issues. Anything she eats now causes a great deal of pain (other than crackers) and the doctors cant figure out what is causing the problems (other than possibly the steroid injections). Any link between the steroid shots and stomach issues? Also, is six foramen epidural shots in six weeks too much? Thanks.
