Notably, the number of steroid injections is limited due to the increasing risk of serious side effects as the injection you receive piles. Surgery This is often the last option when the compressed nerve causes significant weakness, loss of bowel or bladder control, or when the pain progressively worsens or doesn't improve with other therapies.
