i had injury 2001, and recently i had MRI done 01/2011 and i had L4-5 bulging disc. L5-S1 there is a broad-based left paracentral disc protrusion which measures approximately 6mm in ap diameter which effaces the anterior thecal sac and impinges the descending left s1 nerve root.resulting mild to moderate central canal stenosis. there is mild to moderate left neural foraminal stenosis with possible impingement of the exiting left L5 nerve root. the right neural foramen is mildly narrowed.
i want to know if i get the first epidural injection can but didnt help me can i opt out not to get anymore. and can they give me a different kind treatment or surgery? please help any one know help me.thx
