Gerry: It appears that your doctor knows his business. Apart from being risky, surgery for your problem is iffy. For many people suffering with this disorder, including me, surgery is no help at all. The information I have is that steroid injections can be very helpful although the relief is relatively temporary and can be repeated only a limited number of times. At what I assume is your age, temporary is no reason not to go ahead with it. I wish you the very best of luck. |
