Medrol-steroid pack

I was prescribed Medrol for my leg pain. I had microdiscectomy about 16 days ago and still have moderate leg pain. I was wondering if the Medrol is helping an inflammation or just masking my pain.

I am afraid that I've reherniated my disc. I know that steroid helps with inflammation. So if the Medrol is working, does that mean I just have a inflamed nerve and not a bulging disc?

What do you guys think?
Thank you in advance.


  • Let's hope it's not reherniated I hope the steroid helps for you. Take care. Charry
