Was bowling and golfing and walking, until the last caudal injection (4th one) on March 21. Lost bladder, balance, and horrible pain after the injection . Bladder has returned to normal and have improved from walker to a cane but balance and pain is still there. Always have had back problems with pain but never this severe that I can't do anything. I bowled through the pain and even walking but now can only walk a few feet and have to stop because of the pain
