Spinal cord surgery/ nerve burning surgery

hello, I have had back & neck sugery however neither completely took the pain away.. I am seeing a pain management Doctor an trying to decide on which surgery to try & im curious about the test shots that have seen a few people write about before the nerve burning sugery.. I have read the pro's con's of both surgerys also my neck surgery was horrible an I had a hemoitoma an was hospitalized so I'm a little worried about going through another sugery but I'm also sick of the pain meds but I'm not sure what to do.. 


  • hello, perez78!

    i never went through the "test shots", but do know there are members here who have gone through that process.  may i suggest you try using the search feature in the upper right hand corner of this page to look for information on the subject?  you may locate older posts and/or articles that would help to put you in touch with other members who are more familiar with this procedure than i am!

    By "test shots", what do you mean?  I think that you might mean injections in the, it think, discs.  If so, we have had members try that with various success and failures.  If we know more about what you mean, it would draw a bigger response.
