First time posting here......over 20 years of back problems including diagnosis of Anklylosing Spondylytis 16 years ago.
Last couple years have been dealing with thoracic pain so bad it causes my pulse to drop so low I have to be hospitalized without pain Meds. Have a compressed, bulging, Degerative disc in T7/8 causing bone inflammation. Have done about everything short of surgery over last two years having just completed spinal epidural a month ago that had actually made things worse.
Have an appointment scheduled with surgeon but don't even know hat kind of questions to ask or what to expect. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
