I have protrusions at my C5-C6 and C6-C7 causing severe pain in my shoulder, arm pit, fore arm with numbness in my ring and pinky finger, reduculopathy of the C6-C7, per 3 EMG's, as well as a neurogenic bladder. I'm getting a Epideral injection at my C6-C7. This has been going on for almost 1.5 years, having had PT for 1 year of it and it's only getting worse. In can't take NSAIDS due to past bleeding ulcers. Would surgery be next if the shot does not work? Do they even do surgery on disc protrusions or only disc herniations?
