I am a 39 year-old male from San Diego who has been having lower back pain for almost two years now. I've tried conservative and non-surgical treatments, including ESI, spinal decompression, etc. I hate taking pain meds but this is the only way that I can become functional. I am a nurse manager and I do a lot of computer job and paperwork so I spend most of my working hours sitting in chair. I have finally considered surgery, I was recommended to have an artificial disc implant. I know it's kinda new and I want to have some insights and information from people who have had this surgery, I would really appreciate it.
Have a nice day, everyone and hope it's a pain-free one!!
