Hello! My names Anna, I am 21 years old, I was in a work comp injury, and then 3 weeks later a bad car accident. Due to this i have 5 disc herniations, as well as i found out that i have schuererrmanns disease, mild scoliosis, and multi-level disc degeneration disease.
I have done a years worth of Physical therapy, as well as pain management medications, but i am out of options for basic conservative treatment. Next wednesday i have my first facet joint injection, and am a tad nervous but hopeful. I am in school for surgical assisting, and start a 3 month externship next week, so you can all use medical terminology with me, i understand it all! Does anyone know what happens next after the inejctions if they don't work, what the next option is? Is it surgery?
