Healed broken back and leg pain

Posted by suerc @suerc, May 29, 2019

I broke my back 11 mo ago. I have been working hard to stay away from fusion surgery. I still have leg pain, low ba k pain and paiburning pain when I sit for periods of time. My pain Dr suggested a caudal epidural steroid injection. Is t that down by the sacrum. Has anyone e had one how are they done do the hurt. And do they work. It’s pretty much low back sacrum a d it leg where I hurt. Help

Hi, I'm sorry, however I am a bit confused. How did you heal your back on your own, I was under the impression that infection could set in, which would require bone to be removed, same with a fracture, or you may say a broken back.I am really interested in what you were told by your MD
