Has anyone had surgery on there Thorcic spine? I have several issues in my T7 T8. I have had 3 mri's that show these. I have had epidural injections, and many other injections that I don't even remember because this is been going on for 5 years. I am currently taking hydrocodone 10/325 4 times a day. I have been up to taking Opana but they took me off all pain meds for a month so I could start back on the hydro's. Do they go through the chest to operate on bulging discs in the T spine?
