I went to see both doctors within the past week. Both said I can't help you. My pm said we will see what the surgeon says when I asked him what's next. The surgeon said surgery will not help my back pain and that injections obviously won't help since we've been trying with no luck. So he has ordered pt for me. He says pt and meds are what can make me feel better. I've been on meds for a year that's obviously not helping. I'm willing to try pt again but I'm mostly just really upset that I was told by both of them they can't help me. I will most likely go for a second opinion after I go another round in pt.
I guess the good thing is that he ordered the MRI for the new pain. So hopefully I'll figure that out soon because that pain is worse than my lumbar pain most of the time. I don't know the whole thing just has me feeling like I'm never going to feel better. I don't know how much longer I can deal with this and keep my sanity. I just figured I would update but I do have a question. Can surgery help back pain because he's not just telling me it won't help me but it won't help back pain period. I know you all aren't doctors I'm just asking if it helped your back pain.
