I ham no doctor, but after almost 15 years as a cp patient, I have found the epidurals are at best a quick fix, the other problem is the shots over time my become another issue altogether, they are steriods and cant be used over and over again without consequences. So be informed and be careful.
The drive, I dont even want to think about, I rode 8 hours several years ago with my sister who stopped each time I asked her to, even so, when I finally back home, I could not ge ct out of bed for at least a week.
So good luck and make sure to ask questions concerning the long term effects of the shots.
