injections for my herinated dics

I have decided to try the steroid injections to help with the pain in my neck. I have a pinched nerve (discbuldging with pinching of the nerve at C5-6, herinanted disc) I was told by the orthopedic surgeon (Dr. Pasia ) that these shots may help. The name...... cervical steroid epidural injections. Sounds kinda scarry but better than surgery. That may be my next option. I cannot live with the constent pain I have daily. The doc. said I would be a good candidate for the surgery. The name...... Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion c 5-6 . Lets just hope the injections and excercises will help.
