I am very new to this forum. I've had two surgeries, L5/S1 then a year later L4/L5. My surgeon says that I have perminant nerve damage leaving me with the option of a SCS or more epidural blocks. My Chiropractor and I both believe that I am not quite ready for the SCS. He is setting me up with a PM Dr. that has done two of my epidural blocks in the past. I was wondering what to expect. Also, I've heard that they drug test you, if so why? I have no problem taking one but was wondering why.
Thanks in advance,
