A dr mentioned prolo therapy and suggested I give it a try. This dr is a fantastic dr but sadly not the kind of dr who helps with backs..lol He is a gyn. Anyways his wife is a spiney as well so he knows the h@ll I go through 24-7 and said I should give it a try.."at thiss point you have nothing to lose and you want to exhaust all other possible treatments befor surgery". Sounds resonable. I see my 2nd opinion in Jan...for my back so I will try to gather as much info and advice as i can prior to going.
