I was offered an injection back in late April for my back/leg pain. I declined and opted for surgery - I wanted to either fix it or break it. It worked out, the surgery was successful and my back/legs are almost normal. This was in nearby Virginia, a state that has some cases reported. I am not sure when the "bad" stuff was made or even if my facility bought from them.

Any medical procedure or drug is not without risk.

Pain is a motivator and some try and solve it or have little choice but with a shot. The meningitis outbreak is nationwide and the tainted drug was manufactured by a lab in Framingham, MA. I have slipped three disc's in the lower spine and one in the upper at different times and have been able to control the pain with physical therapy. I contemplated the cortisone shot with the upper spine a couple years ago from Pain Care which has dispensed the tainted drug in NH but was able to knock the inflamation down with oral anti-inflamatories and PT.
