Thank you everyone. The avinza just isn't cutting it anymore and I'm up to 150 mg a day. I'll talk to my pm doc when I go in.
Just this past Monday I went in for the first in a series of caudal shots. I feel pretty good today - pain is minimal. I get another one tomorrow. They've worked in the past - although it doesn't last too long. However, I'd go through just about anything to have a day or so of pain free living.
