Arthrogram on my shoulder about 4 hours ago. How long does the lidocaine last, what to do?

Depends on agent: If you received Lidocaine alone only an hour so I do not think you received that. Lidocaine with Epinephrine would last 2-3 hours you may have received that drug. If they used Marcaine the duration can go as long as 8 -20 hours. Best to ask the doctor in all likelihood it will wear off in the next few hours then supportive medication should be fine look at what was written in your post care plan. ...Read more

How long do I have to wait before going to work after shoulder mr arthrogram?

Next day: I prefer my patients to relax, and restrict activities on the day of an arthrogram. Many patients feel better after an arthrogram due to the anesthesia injected with the contrast, and want to do something. A patient may injure themselves with activity if the pain is gone only due to this medication. I tell my patients that they may return to normal activities the next day. ...Read more

I had an arthrogram of my wrist today. Having quite a bit more pain in wrist and elbow. Is that normal? How long should the pain last?

I had an arthrogram of my wrist today. Having quite a bit more pain in wrist and elbow. Is that normal? How long should the pain last?

No. Not normal.: An arthrogram should not hurt afterwards, but very occasionally does. In my practice, less than 1% complain of pain afterwards. Your arthrogram may not have been properly performed, or you may have pain in wrist and elbow due to position in the MRI. I advise warm compress, motrin or other non-aspirin NSAID and 25mg Benadryl (diphenhydramine). Patient pain should be resolved in less than 24 hours. ...Read more

You can google "DrNefcy.com" and go to arthrogram advice for more information. ...Read more
