I've been recently told that I have 2 herniated discs in my neck C4-5 and C5-6, as well as a small spur, spinal stenosis, and reverse curvature.

I wanted to get 2 doctors opinions before starting any invasive treatments, but could only get 1 to see me quickly. That Dr. wants to me to get an cortizone shot in my neck on Friday. Two other doctors (one a neurosurgeon from a famous clinic upstate and the other the most well know spinal person in my town) have both granted me appts on 11/21. The funny thing is it only took 3 weeks to get an appt at the famous clinic, but 6 weeks to see the local dr.

Now my question: Should I go ahead with the steroid injection on Friday, or wait the additional weeks for the famous Dr.'s opinions?

Anyone had these done before?

Thanks!
Marianne
