Two different issues: in my case, among other issues, I have severe stenosis from region C3 thru C7. It too, was a result of a physical accident (5 different ones, in my case), but the real issue is that it's degenerative.

Backstrom's disk issue is likely not degenerative, so the injection will simply aid in reducing the swelling and allowing him to heal faster.

So in his case, a quick fix is good.

In my case, the pain started coming back in the early AM hours Monday morning (had the shot friday @ 5:30 PM), and as of last night, the pain is fully back.

Hopefully, I can get surgery. Until then, it's Norco 10 325's. Heck, I've got a prescription for 120 at a time with 4 refills. My germantown specialist wants me on Oxycodone, and I've gotta head down there to pick up a prescription from him today for 40 Oxy's to try out. Thank Gawd for pain meds, and I hope Backstrom is taking some and not suffering. It's foolish to suffer when you don't have to.
