I've been watching the show, Autopsy, the Last Hours, and in the Bruce Lee episode, the Dr. tries to figure out what killed Bruce Lee. He concludes that the many steroid injections that Bruce had to help his slipped disc ultimately lead to his death because too many cortisone shots damages kidney function. So too many shots over 3 years finally damaged his adrenal glands and kidney to the point that his body couldn't function.
But a single shot near the damaged area where vasectomy pain occurs could potentially help the problem. If I understand correctly, a cortisone shot breaks up scar tissue, and radically reduces swelling.
So have any if you actually had a cortisone shot into the area of PVPS, and what was the effect? I'm not talking about steroid pills, but focusing on the injection of cortisone. In another thread, a book is referenced that talked about the pain being a result of entrapped nerves. It would seem that cortisone could help break up the scar tissue that is contributing.
