Hi, I am Tachi from Malaysia. I was suffering from lower back pain for almost 17 years. Was on painkillers and volteran jabs as well up until 2010 when the pain got extremely bad. Couldnt sleep, nor walk, nor sit and was in misery. The only relieve was from the Volteran jabs. This year March it hit pretty bad when I just couldnt walk. I was admited at a private hospital where the spine consultant did a CTi imaging procedure and injected steroid at my L4 & L5 herniated discs area. Paying MYR16k(USD5k)just took a distance of 2 weeks. I enjoyed walking, sleeping and sitting but for 2 weeks only. I went back to the same doctor and was told that I needed a surgery to replace the discs with spacers. I opted for a 2nd opinion and took all the MRI, CTI scan and X-ray reports to Professor Vickneswaran at the University Malaya Specialist Centre. He is a reknowned Neurosurgeon a.k.a The Hands of God. He took one look at my scans and said that I dont need any surgery as my discs are fine only that its seen good years and there were signs of some wear and tear...thats all. What the doctor at the 1st hospital did was...immediate pain management which came with a high price of course. The professor also told me I should have gone to him in the 1st place and by now he would solved the agony. He prescribed Celebrax and Lyrica twice a day for 1 week and to see him thereafter. Wow!! That was like MYR200(USD60) including a blood test. Today is my 2nd day....I will update the outcome next saturday.
