I injured my back at work about a month ago. I am on workmans comp. I have been going to an orthopaedic dr. After he told me the results of my mri I got scared. He said that I have a slipped disc at L4-5 with a large extruding fragment that is pressing on a nerve, and I also have bulging discs at L2-3, L3-4, and L5-S1. He said that physical therapy would only aggrevate my condition. He wants to try selective nerve root blocks. If that doesnt work, my only other alternative is surgery. He said since im on workmans comp,I have to be well as soon as possible. I have heard so many people say that back surgery made them worse. I was just wondering if I should get a second opion.
