I have had 2 steroid shots in my S1. So far both have helped me for about 3 or 4 weeks and wear off. Last time my Dr. said the next time I come in, if I have gone so many days or weeks without pain he would burn the nerves back there. Ok, I don't have any idea what this means. I've had a double fusion at L 3/4 & 4/5 with instrumentation. I also have Osteoporosis with 3 compression fractures, so when they do the steroid shots I have to have sedation because I cannot lay on my back. Please, I need a little info. ?
