Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Have you been to a pain medicine specialist to try a cortisone shot in your back (epidural nerve block)?
Please let me know.
no xray shows bone has moved forward and now out of place trapping nerves. seems only an op can correct this
I made contact, hoping to find a way of speeding things up and getting an op ASAP. Because I would have to get those super strong painkillers from the Dr, which would show on my record. Which, I feel would then make me a NON urgent patient as my pain is under control, leaving me further down the list for an op. You need to understand I have lost 3/4 of feeling in my legs and feet now it seems my pelvis and all nerves therein are going the same way. So, I need to be aware of how bad it is, rather than cover all the pain then, one day collapse with it all gone beyond repair, and I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. All I wanted to know is can I speed up getting my op?
