Hi Everyone,
I am scheduled for a cervical epidural injection tomorrow. I am debating if I should do it because I don't just want to mask the symptoms. I'm concerned that if the block works my symptoms will eventually come back, which means I am just postponing the inevitable, "surgery".

I go back to the ortho in 3 weeks. If I am not any better he is going to schedule me for surgery. My question is, how will I know if I am truly any better if my symptoms are masked by the nerve block?

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Debbie
