Im just curious because I now live in El Paso, TX which is right on the border. I had a L-6/S-1 disc replacement done over a year and a half ago in New York where I lived at the time. I am now in Texas and I believe one of my discs above that is causing problems. I started out with 3 bulging discs (ddd) and the bottom one went out. We were hoping that the two above would get better, but like I said, Im having problems now. Which brings me back to the question in the Subject line. I would love to hear from you!
