6 few months ago for whatever reason, my L2-L3 disc decided to just evaporate into nothingness. Since then I saw a doctor who said I would completely recover and that the 2 vertebrae would fuse together on their own, so he put me in a back brace. Now, I'm no medical expert, I'm a history major, but I have never heard of natural fusion being the solution for such a problem, I've only ever heard of forced fusion through a medical procedure. Well, here I am, three months into wearing a back brace and there have been NO changes in the pain I feel. Because I'm in school I can't see the doctor again until November because he doesn't appear in the office on weekends so I can't ask him what the deal is. So, can someone tell me if this doctor has any idea what he's doing, or am I just sitting around waiting for my back to heal on the 12th of Never?
