Hello Everyone, :??
I am a 31 year old female, and was in a car accident about four years ago and now I have four bulging discs and a herniated disc. I have had every single treatment out there imaginable and nothing has helped. I was sent to a surgon and he was going to do the disc fusion surgery however when he sent me in to get a discogram, they could not recreate the pain. The surgon then said he would send me to a pain management clinic, which seems to be another way of saying deal with the pain. I was wondering if there are any other options I may be able to try, or if it would be a bad idea to go against the surgon and have the surgery done anyways? I am having a pretty rough time dealing with the reality of all of this, and I just want my life back again. I used to be so active, and now it is hard to do the most basic things. I hope someone has some advice and can help with this issue. Would surgery be a big mistake ? It seems like the only option now. I would greatly appreciate it so much for any advice!! Thank You!!
