Just got home after visit with my spine specialist. Did new x-ray's. The protruding has gotten slightly worse but still not enough to warrant surgery. I got a long acting steroid shot. I can get one every 3 months. He said it will run my BS numbers up but should level back out after 3-4 days. He said to keep a close check on my BS and up the 2 Aleve daily to 4. Two in the morning and two at night. No bending if I can keep from it. I have been in horrible pain for a couple of weeks and hope to get some relief. When it gets to the point one cannot function it's time to try something else. I know all the side effects of steroids but sometimes you just gotta do whatever works.
