I am not able to function nor walk far due to a fracture in my spine and herniated disk. I had 3 consultations from surgeons all saying I need a fusion. I was told I had to have a transformial epidural to satisfy my insurance company for surgery? Not only did it not help but I’m worse than before. I had a bad fall so it’s a trauma injury so why if I can’t do physics therapy was it forced into this shot? I lay in bed crying as I have no quality of life and felt like a guinee pig ! I had hopes the shot would relieve some pain but now it’s worse it’s so bad. I’m so depressed at the way insurance works and what’s not being done I’ve been like this for 8 months. I can’t shower with out pain, can’t walk far or tolerate being on my feet much, sometimes I have to lay down in my side to eat my meals like a dog! When is enough enough?
