What I'm going to say is not intended to scare you away from your recommended treatment, but here goes:

I had a micro-d at L4-5 due to nerve root compression (according to my ortho surgeon, the nerve was literally pulsing and he had to bathe it in Toradol during the surgery). Anyway, I had injections after the surgery, and my experience was not good. They caused increased pressure on the nerve root and the scar tissue, and the only relief I had was from the analgesic the dr injected at the time of the injection. It actually made my nerve pain, low back and buttock pain worse. We then tried a medial branch nerve block, but that didn't work either. So, while injections do work for some people, they definitely did not work for me after my micro-d.
