I have been trying conservative and alternative treatments for a bulging lumber disc for 4 months now. With a spinal injection 2 weeks ago I saw my first improvement...but improvement means I now cn be standing or sitting for about 45 min before the pain gets me flat on my back, prior to the injection for 6 weeks it was only 10 min...enough time to make tea, but not toast! So I've had a bit of improvement but I am contemplating surgery for a large bulge L4/L5.
Any warnings or recommendations for surgeons in Massachusetts?
Thanks so much
