CT Scan guided celestone chronodose injection

Post by MareeT » Thu Jun 22, 2017 10:29 am

Good Morning Folks

Hubby has developed a very dibilitating case of sciatica and recently had an MRI at Bangkok Hospital. The results showed significant nerve root compression on both the left and right side at L4-L5 with stenosis from L2-3 to L5-S1.
He was prescribed anti-inflamitory and pain management medication, which to date has been unsuccessful. Additionally he has tried physiotherapy and dry needling.

As he has had no success thus far, Hubby contacted our doctor in Australia with the results and he recommended trying a CT guided celestone chronodose injection rather than fly home for treatment. Has anyone had any experience with this type of procedure here? How successful was it and what was the approximate cost (the old pre-existing issue regarding insurance).

Thanks in advance for any advise and info.

Cheers Maree

no reply to you, so I'll try. THe BKK Hospitl in BKK, has a specialist Spinal Surgery unit. That would be a good option, 2nd after going back to Aus, a First World Country.
