Treatment Ratings

    Worsened
    Cortisone Injection

Steriod injections did nothing. Denervation suggested. Had neurosurgeon review for possible correction. Said it would be dangerous to have surgery. Denervation not a good idea. Wanted to have myelogram for better view than CT scan. Can't do MRI because of pacemaker and hip hardware. Spend every day in pain and have great difficulty walking. Try to keep active in spite of pain.
