I remember someone telling me that after i had a laminectomy that epidural steroid injections are often more beneficial.  i had about a dozen of these little beasties over the past 18 or so yrs and the longest any one of them has lasted has been about a week. 
the pain in my back is becoming less and less funny (as if it evver was) and i'm getting tired of taking morphine once or twice a day.  have any of you heard of epidural steroid injections being more beneficial after a laminectomy?  i would appreciate any input that you may have.  i'm not quite desperate, but i'm getting there.

That light at the end of he tunnel?  It's an on-coming train.

Hi WARREN....i can only share what has worked for me...I too was on morphine for yrs along with lot other stuff for pain...i had 6 spine operation...i had it all...well the pain meds stop working about 3 months ago for me....so i ask my brother for help..he is into juicing..i was hurting that bad..i was calling 911 to take me to the hospital...so i tried it all.... its been 2 months now and iam pain free and dont take no meds or see any of my dr's anymore or my phamacy..that was my life...the first 3 weeks i had pain ..but instead of taking meds..i would make juice...meds didnt work anyways....I would take 4 carrots,1/2beet,1/2 cucumber,some spinish and a apple,...wal mart had a good juice for 60 bucks..works great...well i hope this will help you..its cheaper then dr's and meds...god bless...james

at first i was juicing 4 to 6 times a day for the first week or twothen it goes down from there....iam at 2 times a day now....my brother says 2 times a week should all i need soon...it just depends on how i feel.
