I have chronic back pain with acute flare-ups about every three months.
When I get a flare, I have to go straight on to Morphine IR and MST. Then I get put on a list for urgent caudal epidural, which fixes things and I come off of the opiates over the following week.
I'm travelling to New York on holiday in February. I know about taking controlled drugs with me and having a doctors letter, in case I have a flare.
My question is, bearing in mind I can't get travel insurance without a back pain exclusion, if I get a flare and need a caudal epidural, how much is it likely to cost in New York?
