Four months ago I was diagnosed with a bulging of L5-S1 and other problems due to this as far as I can read in my MRI. A neurosurgeon has been treating me since then, although he did say that if in three months time my problem didn't get better he would perform surgery. I was doing very well with Neurontin and Meloxicam until I was taken off of the Meloxicam three weeks ago. Since then I have had the pain running down my leg again and at times in my lower back. A chiroprater and physiotherapist was recommended to me by a friend and in my desire to improve without surgery I went to see him yesterday. I had my first session but was thinking that maybe the forceful jerking of that type of treatment was not the right thing for a 65 year old woman. I survived it yesterday but am supposed to have another session tomorrow, although I am having second thoughts about it. :SS
Any advice on this I would deeply appreciated.
