It's been about 5 months since I herniated a disc in my back. I have tried every conservative treatment available to me minus the epidural injection. My pain is always bad but I felt lately that I can do more thing and last longer on my pain meds. I feel like I was maybe getting better. Well I just has a follow up ct scan that showed the exact opposite!!! The radiologist compared my current scan with my previous scan and this one was showing the herniation larger and worse than the previous scan. How is that even possible when i thought my pain was getting better. I I'm so discouraged and upset by this news.
Did anyone heal on their own without surgery? Would love to hear some words of encouragement
