anybody know anything about "Epidermal Shots?"

my wife has three herniated discs in her neck and they told her she will probably need surgery but they want to make sure and first give her an epidermal shot near the discs. i think it's cortazone. it's spozed to hurt alot. then they are talking about another shot three days after that one. i have been told by my brother in pharmacy school these shots have come a very long way since only a year ago. anybody have any recent experience with anyone whose had these things? thanks.

thanks malc. i guess it's great stuff in joints as they shoot up ball-players all the time. i am mainly wondering about your gal's neck. i have talked to people who have had both the fusion as well as disc replacement who really had excellent results. but my other friend has his lower back verts fused ten years ago and he's been in agony all doped up ever since.

I also got a friend in Canada, his disc in his lower back broke in half and one part went walkies into the muscle. He used to walk real wierd, then he got it taken out and fused, all went well.
One of the problems in the neck is, three vertebrae fused together causes restricted movement and muscle tiredness in the upper back muscles.
Plenty of pillow support is also needed when sleeping on one´s side.

Epideral or EpideRMal shots?
If it is Cortazone...Your luck is going to keep going the same way it has been. Cortazone is a pain masking drug. It doesn't cure the problem, it just makes it hurt less so you can function. In the meantime the damage is still there and you are doing more harm on top of what you already have, because you can't feel the pain.
Good luck with that...let us know what happens.
Later,
WEIMER
