This is a new post about my previous topic about me being 24 and needing advice, age and needing advice haven't changed, but trying to be more precise on the specific topic I feel has.
I had my first cortisone shot and I am approaching my second, the pain has worsened in my lower back and now my right leg pain is getting more severe, the left hasn't changed much but is still a solid 7 at a constant. Surgery is looking more like a must and according to my attorney the main surgery in oklahoma is a fusion. They do not do the other surgerys that I have read about that are available in other parts of the country. Is there very many people with a good turn out for this type of surgery? Mine will be a double fusion at L4-L5 L5-S1 I believe. What size settlement should I be looking at as far as pain and suffering goes ( aherniated discs at L4-L5 L5-S1 that keeps me in sever pain constantly that are aherniated to an 8 of 10 scale according to the doctor), cause if I have nothing but pain to look forward to then a little settlement is not going to cover future surgerys or medical help. Just starting to get scared about everything and feel like I need more advice. Thanks for your time and concern.
