I hope you are feeling better, do the cortisone injections help you? When I got them in my shoulder they would give me relief for several months, but they never really helped that much in my back! I go in Wed. the 10th for another epidural steroid injection, I hope it will help more than the last one ( two days was all I got ) they injected C6/7 where I had the disc fusion, and my left arm felt great for two whole days! Then the pain came back with a vengeances!
Anyway I do hope you are doing better now! Please take care of yourself!
Wishing you the Best!
