Unhappy - pars defect & corticosteroid injections pars defect & corticosteroid injections

[font=Georgia][i]Hello there sisters. It's been about 6 months from my TAH & all is well on that front, my concern now is this, I have SEVERE lower back pain due to what is called 'pars defect' of the 2 lowest vertebrae. the Dr ordered that I get these steroid injections before we try anything else, & needless to say they have done nothing but make the pain worse (at times) & gaining 10lbs. in about 3 days after each injection! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! Does this weight come off as easily as it came on? Does anyone know what I am going through! Love to hear from you!

pars defect & corticosteroid injections

Hi Angel,

I have a lot of back problems (I won't go through the list). I am disabled due to pain. I also have a pars defect and steriod injections never really helped me all that much either.

I have noticed that my weight effects my pain levels. I personally didn't seem to gain weight from the injections. How long has it been? I would drink LOTS of water to flush your system.

Exercise helps too, anything you can do.

Have you tried physical therapy and/or acupuncture? Acupuncture really helped me a lot.

Are you seeing a Spine specialist or Pain specialist?

Good Luck,

Maria
