My surgeon is leaning towards putting in spacer devices for C/4/5/6 stenosis, bone spurs, and herniation. I got one cortisone shot (found out I'm allergic) and have an appointment with surgeon soon.
1. Do insurance companies make the surgeons try the shots first? I heard that was wondering.
2. Is the steroid in the cortisone shot the same steroid as in the epidural?
I had an artificial disk put in C7/T1 December 2016. Two epidurals never worked. I don't want to have another.
