Hello! This is my first post. I came across your site while searching for information on alternative pain management. My best friend has had DDD for quite a few years and Fusion surgery will soon be the last resort. Surgery is scheduled for Nov. 18th. The problem is that he is in alot of pain and will no longer take meds because he had a bad experience with the medication. I would like to find other alternatives to deal with the pain better. I would really appreciate any help with this. Thank you for listening.
