Just got back from seeing another doctor on my neck and back.
I have C-5-6 C6-7 HNP Stenosis in my neck
and Severe Spondylosis at T11-T12, T12-L1 and L1-L2.
The first doctor that I went to is a orthopedic doctor and the second one that I went to today was a Neurologist.
The first Dr. recomments surgery on my neck and middle and lower back.
The second Dr. said no surgery, because I did not have any nerve damage, just to take the shots and hope they will work. He said sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. When I ask wasn't the shots just a stop gab measure and not a fix, he did not answer me. When I ask him what if the shots do not work, then what? He still did not answer. I guess he did not know what to tell me except that I would just have to put up with all the pain.
I would appreciate any comments on this. I really don't know what to do, I do know though that I can't continue to hurt. I can't hardly do any house work or ride very far in my car. If I do very much of anything it puts me in tears.
