Years of lower back pain on and off has been getting me down so i decided to go private after my local GP said i was suffering muscular back pain.
My private Dr who is a Neurosurgeon sent me for an MRI scan
The results from the MRI showed an L4-L5 and L5-S1 disc prolapse and annular tear.
I underwent left-sided L5-S1 transforaminal epidural injection, a left L4-L5 transforaminal epidural injection, and facet blocks into the left L3-4, bilateral L4-5, and L5-S1 facets.
I had no relief from these and 2 months later received the same course of injections which again gave me no relief.
My surgeon has given me 2 options now.
1 - FRP
2 - A Discography
I have been off my work since April last year because of my back pain and really want to get things sorted.
The nearest place to me that does FRP is an hours drive away, i'm in pain sitting in the car for half an hour! I've heard good and bad reviews about a discography.
What do you think i should do?
Without struggle there is no progress
