A few of you were aware I just started to see a back pain specialist in Nov. Quick update for my pain from back and nerve leg pain due to severe ddd, 2 herniated discs L5-S1, severe narrowing of spinal cord, and oa all in same area.
I had a bilateral flouroscopic steroid injections on 2 Dec. It helped I would say like 50% or more but only for about 11 days. Then nerve pain has started to increase since then. Currently I believe I could say I am having about a 25% decrease from initial.
Maybe offered another treatment in am. What would you do? Procedure was quite painful. Will it improve more or is it just a temp fix?
Doc also said we may look at treating back and oa next. Ie,,,surgery or other treatments.
IDK it was painful but still in pain now so hard to decide.
