My 18 year old son Was diagnosed with a herniated disk L4 and L5 Back in December. We have tried physical therapy and we also tried 1st injection. Neither one has worked and he suffers from lake pain almost everyday. We went back for our follow up appointment and she is recommending one more injection to try. She said she was going to go in from a different Approach. He is schedule to have that may 18th 2 weeks later we have a follow up appointment with the surgeon if this does not work and they are recommending a disectomy. I am a nervous wreck with all of this I don't know what the right answers are and I don't know what to do I just now that he is tired of being in pain and we just want to get this fixed. He is so young to be going through this. Does anyone have any recommendations that have this or have going through this. If the surgery work to fix this then I would be happy I just don't want to have the surgery and then get told that he will need another one or something else
