My Sister has had Parkinson's Disease years & is extremely

Resolved Question:

My Sister has had Parkinson's Disease years & is extremely pleased with her Consultant that treats her.
Unfortunately about eleven months ago she had a fall injuring her back. After six months of continuous pain, physiotherapy & medication which did not help, she had a scan which revealed a bulging disc in the 4 & 5th Lumber also some spinal stenosis.
She has had a Spinal compression operation 4 months ago but is still experiencing severe pain in her ankle as well as pins & needles. She is on strong medication but doesn't get any relief from the pain
She's been told that its too early to consider a nerve block injection.
What is the earliest time scale spinal /epidural injection following her surgery.
