I went to see my surgeon today and right away he said no way. Your back is way gone beyond any help. He will noe perorm any surgery. I cried like a baby. Im am so depressed right now, I cant stop crying. He said iLL BE WITH PAIN MANAGEMENT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. And the DDD will get worse. I am so distraught. I even considered taking all of my meds at once. I cant deal witht this. I am scheduling a 2nd opinion with the top surgeon in our area. Also I am switchin pain management dr. as long as she will let me out of the contract. How hard is it to get out of the contract? I am so sad.
