Sick of the constant pain

  • I recently started seeing a spinal surgeon and have had an xray and an MRI done he confirmed that I have a herniated disc in my lower back. I received one steroid injection so far it didn't seem to do much so I'm now scheduled to get another one in about a month and he says if that doesn't work he recommends a lami disc surgery but I am very hesitant on the surgery since I've heard of so many horror stories

  • I was able to manage the pain with physical therapy in the past but last summer I visited a chiropractor who seemed to make the problem much worse and since then the stretches don't help much and the pain is more intense and more frequent
