Treatment Ratings

    Not Improved
    Cortisone Injection, Epidural

The injections that are supposed to last 3 months actually last 2-3 weeks. Dr is AGAINST providing pain pills, his explanation is that 'I don't want you to become addicted to them' but it is ok to be addicted to pain. I'm ok sitting down or laying down. Hurts too bad to walk more that 10 steps, and exercise OUCH.
