Severe pain in lower back, legs after taking cortisone injection for lower vertebrae problem. Suggestions?

I recented received cortizone shots into two lower back vertibre to help with the shooting pain in my hips and legs. The GP who suggested this procedure promised that the worst that could happen is that the cortizone injections would not take and I would not be any worse off. Wrong! I now suffer from quite severe pain in my lower back andfrom time to time have shooting pains into both legs. I now have resorted to using a cane. Would do I do now?

Thank you for the query. I have gone through your query and understood your concerns. I suggest you to have epidural analgesia instead of cortisone to get relief. But as you have recently took the shot you can have spinal stimulation therapy which is showing good results now a days. Thank you.
