If anyone has any opinions or ideas as to hiw i should proceed with my situation PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!! Ty
Regular steroid injections helped me quite a bit. Used to get two between l4-l5, especially after my spinal fusion. I also had an epidural nerve root block before my fusion and will NEVER NEVER let anyone do that to me again. 15 years later I am on a pain daily medication regimen. Fentanyl, hydrocodeine, and gabapentin.
Although, too many years of steroid treatment made the bones in my back age prematurely but... it helped with the pain
