Does anyone know if there is any success in using an epidural to block pain in the lower back from cancer that has spread into the lymph nodes in the lower back--my son had a celiac block for belly pain and it seems to have cut his pain from a 10 (or 17as he said once!!) to a 5, sometimes lower. It is now his back that hurts the most. Know they are used to help normal people with bad backs--let me know if you have any info--Linda
