Long story short :
Have bulging disc
Arthritis in neck
I have spent the last 8 months in my recliner chair because the bulging disc was pressing on a nerve and I could only stand for a hour or so.
Had steroid injections, therapy and a nerve root block 2 months ago with no relief.
BUT in the last 2 weeks the disc pain has subsided quite a bit, I hope its getting healed.
I can now stand and walk for a few miles. The arthritis hurts a bit but its manageable.
This Diagnostic nerve block was scheduled 2 months ago when I was in worse shape.It is being done for a possible surgery which I really don't want.
Do you think I should call my doctor and postpone or cancel it ? in hopes I may be getting better.
Reason being, its very dangerous,painful and really expensive.
Thanks in advance Larry
