Hi Everyone, Well I called my drs. office yesterday and they called me back today. I will be getting a second round of epidural shots in my lower back. I sure hope this helps. I don,t know what the next step i should take if it doesn,t. So now I just wait till thye get back to me to set everything up. I go back to work Monday which I,m not looking forward to because i have a very physical and demanding job. So we,ll see

OH....I wish you luck with those. I can't do them anymore....I had my first one over 20 years ago...an epidural and caudil block...painful..they wouldn't give me anything before the procedure....Then i had more as the years went by. The last one was a few years ago..My Neurosurgeon said it was like sticking a syringe through a block of wood....He said he wouldn't do it again...too much scar tissue.... I hope they work....they didn't do anything for me. But I know that it does work for most..
