Hi. L5 S1 disc herniation ... complicated by a "old" cracked vertebrae at the site.
I've had 2 spinal injections. Last one was 5 days ago; a nerve root block. It seemed to decrease the pain quite a bit. Feel it coming back again last night/today. Got one more injection scheduled.
Also have surgery scheduled for Dec 30th (Docs are taking the "have a plan A and plan B approach).
Due to the cracked vert., operation will require "fusion". Guess that's my story.
