Hi anyone- New to this site
I had a fusion in 2002-had a lot of pain after the operation so I was put on prednisone (steriod) . The pain went away immediately but had a bad reactions. Throat swelled up could not breath. Doc said unusual gave me a epidural in my neck of cortisone (steriod). Same bad reaction. Still in pain don't want another operation. Anyone had a simular reaction ,any alternatives. Any suggestions would be helpful.
