Ive had 2 cortizone shots at l5-s1 (1 on disk and 1 in the facets). Im going for another injection next week for the facets and my PM said if that does the work they will proceded to a nerve block.
I have no idea at all what a nerve block consists of but i think ill be pretty messed up if I have that done. Will you be able to feel pain later on (like a year later?) because I dont want to have this done and feel great and go out and do something to really mess myself up because I cant feel any pain at all-

Mid back pain- MRI showed nothing just my luck
L3-4: Mild bilateral facet arthroses.
L4-5: Mild desiccation and disc bulge. Mild bilateral facet arthroses.
L5-S1: Mild disc space narrowing and desiccation with a left central disc extrusion which extends dorsally up to 4mm. There is mild retrolisthesis of L5 on S1 of 2mm. There is mild ventral indentation on the dural sac and left S1 nerve root. There is no foraminal narrowing. Mild bilateral facet arthroses.
Conservative treatments: non surgical spinal decommpresson (this helped alot!), petibon system, excersice ruitine, 1 x epidural(s) (this relived some pressure on s1-l5 whooo who), coming soon adult stem cell injection!
Time to go back and get another degree because of my back great!
