I was in a car accident over a year and a half ago and have been suffering from severe lower back pain. I have been going through numerous diagnostics to pin point the reason for the pain and after 1 1/2 years the doctors finally figured out it was a herniated bulging discs. I have gone to several spine surgeons one told me to get pregnant and if that didn't help then he wanted to fuse my spine. Can we say "Quack Doctor!"
Another surgeon wanted me to get the fusion surgery asap and the third doctor wanted to try microdiscetomy first. I would like to go with the last doctors choice but everything I have read about the people who had gotten this procedure complained more of leg pain and numbness rather than lower back pain. I have no leg pain or numbness just incredible back pain in my lower back. Does any one have any suggestions? I'm afraid to be wasting time with this surgery and it not working and then I will have to get my spine fused anyway. Has anyone gotten this procedure that DID NOT have any leg pain or numbness????? Has it helped? Very desperate for answers.
I was pregnant at the time of the car accident and lost my baby 2 weeks after the accident. My husband and I have been waiting to find out what is wrong with my back and how to fix it for over 1 1/2 years. We are desperate to get pregnant and I'm am just so sick and tired of waiting to see if something will work or not. I just want someone to say this is whats wrong, this is what will fix it, and this is how long it will take for you to recover. I need to get my life back on track before I loose my mind.
