I am a new member to the forum and looking for advice.
I have multiple herniated/bulging discs in Thoracic and Lumbar spine that are causing severe pain. I was in a car accident 2 years ago and have been living in pain since. I have had multiple (approx 8 ESI injections) at various levels and with each injection i seem to get less and less relief. How many steroid injections are considered too many?
After two years of dealing with this i feel like i need to demand surgery. I know that surgery is a last resort and at this point i feel like i am there. I am unable to work for the first time in my life, my kids are really feeling like i am not as involved in their lives as i used to be because i am in constant pain, and my husband keeps saying that he feels like i am not happy anymore. It's not only taking its toll on me its affecting every aspect of my life.
Looking for relief...
