Thanks I will talk to my Pain Doc about
it after I see the neurosurgeon! I know he does the radio frequency ablations, he does all the stuff. He even admitted to me he really didn't know if the neurosurgeon could even do anything, but he wanted to make sure, before going ahead with anything else! I really trust this guy, and I know he will only do what is best for me! Yea the steroids are really a double edged sword, they can do so much good, but the side effect can be devastating!
