First let me explain TE have a 3 on set, than the cycle is 1 yr. I was getting epidurals in my back ,every 6 months. So once I got the epidural it took 3 months to start, and a year to finish. I kept getting it ,so the cycle kept going and going for three yrs.
Once I had the biopsy that showed I had CE I did had to figure it out because TE is shock to the system.

Wow that is expensive! Worth it if it works in the long term as spending money on wigs and things to cover your head mounts up.
