I have finally decided to post after checking in here a few times. I am a 37 yo man in the Midst of getting a refferal for Ortho#2 after my GP told me I should consider dumping Neuro#1. 2 months and still not much change.I have been told (by the Neuro)I have Just a few minor bulging discs and neuropathy and everything should be fine shortly. Still not fine though. Pain one place one hour somewhere else the next hour. Nights are brutal. Life in general is brutal. Sitting,walking and standing hurt. I was also told that due to the MRI readings and how I had just hurt my back I should not play golf for at least a year, preferably..never.
Anyhow, I am usually not this down but I had to get it out to you all.I am awaiting a refferal for an Ortopedic Surgeon and my GP is trying to get me a Microdiscectomy at my urging. It's been on and off for 7 years and I cannot let this keep controlling my life. Any Advice would be appreciated.
Thank you and keep up your good work.
