Hi, I'm 36 and for over three years I have been suffering with 4 prolapsed discs in my neck. They are impinging on nerves and compressing my spinal cord but in the UK unless you're incontinent and/or paralysed a surgeon won't touch you....I'm still waiting for a neurosurgeon appointment. Should be seeing one in next 6 weeks.
Anyway in the meantime I've been scheduled to have a cervical epidural on Friday and I am worried about it. I have read too many negative reports I think but my question is....is it worth doing? Is it worth the risk for at best a 50/50 chance of any relief at all?
Has anybody had one and if so how was it? Did it help you? Would you do it again?
