Is this surgery different than twilight sleep cortizone injections?

I was diagnosed in 2002 with Cauda Equina Syndrome, and had an emergency surgery; the surgeon said I should have been paralized, but I walked in using a cane. A couple of years later, I broke my left leg badly enough to be in a wheelchair for a year. Now, in 2010, and I am in the worst pain ever, and I have a "pinched nerve". I have all the signs of a pinched nerve, but my leg is now giving out. They are sending me to a pain doctor, who is going to give me an injection, once a week for three weeks straight. Since the injections they have given me in the past were to be no more than three injections across 12 months, does anyone know what the difference in the injections are, or had the three injections three weeks straight. They are also sending me to a neurologist. I despise drs. for not being more clear. And getting info out of surgeon, is straight difficult. Can anyone shed light on this.
