Cervical Epidural Side Effects
How many cervical epidurals can you have in a year and what are the potential long term side effects? They have recommended one every other month. I have stenosis, DDD and arthritis c-2 through t-1.
It all depends on how much steroids are used every time and the total amount in a year, usually no more than 3-4 times a year.
