I had three injections all of which worked for a few days to two weeks then stopped. The excruciating pain returned and only Vicoden 5 mg 3-4 times a day controlled the pain. Vicoden at that dose is the lowest dose prescribed. it worked perfectly for several years and doctors refused to prescribed opioids for fear of losing their license. My sister recently died of throat cancer and she complained constantly of pain. She died with unrelieved pain. As a cancer patient she was prescribed Morphine 2 mg. every 6 hours. That is beyond ridiculous but keeps our doctor’s license safe. Our doctors are violating their Hippocratic oath – Do No Harm. They had added a caveat “except when the government is breathing down your neck. Then the patient be damned. I am glad this helped you Randy. I don’t know your clinical status but I am sure it differs from mine. Do you have severe and crippling arthritis?
I am currently receiving my third and last cortisone shot in my lower back. I was operated on in May for L4 and L5 spinal stenosis. The pain was excruciating. The neural pain did not cease after the operation. The level of pain did increase. I decided to go to pain management for cortisone shots. They are not helping; I still have that rubber band feeling around my ankle and the pain that radiates from my hips and buttocks down the leg and into the calf and ankle. I go for my last shot next week, and I'm hoping that this will help. If not, then it's back to the neurosurgeon for an MRI and possibly more back surgery .
McMahon eventually became the regular play-by-play commentator and maintained that role until November 1997, portraying himself as easily excited and over-the-top. In addition to matches, McMahon also hosted other WWF shows, and introduced WWF programming to TBS on Black Saturday , upon the WWF's acquisition of Georgia Championship Wrestling and its lucrative Saturday night timeslot (McMahon sold the timeslot to Jim Crockett Promotions after the move backfired on him and he eventually acquired JCP's successor company, World Championship Wrestling , from AOL Time Warner in 2001). At the 1987 Slammy Awards , McMahon performed in a musical number and sang the song "Stand Back".  The campy "Stand Back" video has since resurfaced several times over the years as a running gag between McMahon and any face wrestler he is feuding with at that particular time, and was included on the 2006 McMahon DVD.
