I have been diagnosed with a L4 L5 Herniated disc from a car accident I was involved with. I am currently in a workers compensation and personal injury settlement process, and was told by my doctor that I need to have an L4, L5 dissectomy, as an MRI was done.
I am 23 years old, 5'11, and just had shoulder surgery for it. I went to two other doctors and they also said to have surgery. I know this surgery will greatly help my settlement, but I do not want to go into this recklessly.
I would not be paying anything, and I already went through physical therapy, chiropractor, and injections, both regular and to burn the nerve, but I still feel the pain. I mostly feel it when I am laying down or sitting up, but sometimes I feel it on my sides as well. If I stick my left leg out straight while sitting, I feel it go down my leg a bit.
What do you guys/girls think?
