Thank you for your question. If your epidural shots were steroid epidural injections then the answer is yes. There is a rare risk of developing kidney failure from repeated steroid epidural shots to the lower back. The reason for this is due to the side effects of prolonged use of steroid basted anti-inflammatory medications.
