The benefits from the first shot only lasted 2 weeks. The second and third set of injections lasted about 90 days. In November, I was ready to have surgery. My EMG and nerve conduction tests proved that the nerves were "sleeping" before I was. After another MRI, the neurosurgeon said I was a candidate for surgery but I was not able to get the endoscopic type surgery that is less invasive. I would have an incision about 6-8" long. Along with removing the herniation, they would have to increase the size of the hole where the nerve roots were going through.

Steroid injection has been around since the early 1950s, and it remains a primary treatment for general practitioners all the way to orthopedic surgeons. Why? First of all, it offers the hope of quick relief. Second, it’s a Big Fat Cash Cow. Let’s do the math. Say you have sciatica, and you go to see Dr. Prick Butt and he says, “Not much I can do for you other than give you a steroid injection. Of course, it may take up to three of these to achieve the best results.” Three injections @ $150 per injection = $450. Now, taking into account that the average orthopedist probably sees at least 20 patients a day and works 180 days a year, that comes to 3,600 patients. If 20 percent of those patients get three steroid injections, that’s an annual income of $324,000 ($450 X 750 patients). That’s for 10 minutes of work per patient. And you wonder why things haven’t changed in more than 50 years.

I found an old interview with you regarding your book on Pregnenolone. Checking out your website, I notice you have warnings about dosage. Have you changed your mind? Do you think it has too many risks? For me, Pregnenolone feels like a miracle. I have suffered with vestibulitis for ten years .. all the years that my hormones have been plummeting. I am 47. I have always been fit. I believe my hormone issues are from having been on the pill for years to control endometriosis (I quit the pill ten years ago also, but I had started having symptoms before that). Anyway, I have tried every Rx, diet, PT, herb, acupuncture, etc. Bio-identical hormones gave some help. Recently I tried pregnenolone and my pain immediately decreased by 75% and I had a sudden urge to paint, which I have not done in 15 years! Do you feel it is risky for someone like me, who produces very little of any key hormones, to take pregnenolone 10mg/day? Or was that warning more for folks who still produce normal levels? I hope you'll write back. I am AMAZED to find an MD who knows what this is and what it does.
   A. I think one should be cautious taking 10 mg a day for prolonged periods. I good idea is to adjust the dosage periodically to find the lowest amount that works and to also take a couple of days off each week if possible.

The Story: In February 2005 Canseco released his autobiography and steroid tell-all, Juiced , Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big. In it he described himself as 'the chemist' having experimented on himself for years. He claimed to have educated and personally injected many players including Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Juan Gonzalez, Ivan Rodriguez, and Jason Giambi. In his second book, Vindicated , Canseco added Magglio Ordonez to the list of players he had educated and injected with steroids. He also said he introduced Alex Rodriguez to a trainer/PED supplier after Rodriguez had asked where he could get steroids.
