I'm bugging and I need something. I'm 29 and I have a bulging disk L4 causing spinal stenosis. Degenerative disc disease. Spinal canal is .59cm the pain has progressed over two months to debilitating. The bulge is going directly back into the spinal canal. Pain management Dr gave me a warning and next I'm discharged from the practice because i was doubling up on pain pills 5mg hydro now 5mg oxycodone. I got a ssecond opinion because pain Dr wwantme to get an epidural and said that was the only option. Second opinion said Pt then epidural if needed, well it's needed.

I'm all over the place I apologize, phones spell check sucks as well.

What can i expect from this epidural today... I start a new job tomorrow and I'm scared I won't be fixed enough to do it. Standing job. Selling phone's. I have to get it or I am going to be in a bad spot. Insurance ends on the 31st and won't start untill the new year... So I'm doing everything now.

So yeah, any pointers advice and expectations would be appreciated.
