Discussions that mention dexamethasone

Back Problems board

Well, I talked to the surgeron, and he said it is probably inflammation, so I am on oral steroids (Dexamethasone, 4MG) for a couple weeks. Hopefully that fixes it. I'm a hurtin person right now! If there is permanent nerve damage, and I have constant leg pain, does that mean that incontenance is going to be permanent, too? :(
