I have chronic lower back, neck and shoulder pain and excruciating headaches caused by ddd and 3 herniated disks in the lower back and "nothing major" in the neck according to the doctor who couldn't be bothered to read the MRI report. I am very seriously considering breast reduction and I would love to hear from any of you have gone through this. Please tell me if the pain was as horrible as I'm imagining? Did it help with your back pain and any other symptoms you had? If you could go back would you do it again? Thank you to anyone who is willing to share their story!


  • I had 2 coworkers have the surgery and both of them were very pleased with the results. I myself have also considered this surgery. Let me know if you go through with it. Take care. Charry
    DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing c-spine c4-c7 RN
  • That had this done and did get relief with her back pain. I have a sister that needs to do it but is too afraid of the surgery. It really changed my friends life for the better.

  • I had one about eight years ago long before my lower back issues arose. The surgery did help to get rid of the upper back pain and neck pain that were with me always as well as the constant headaches I was having. Recovery was not as bad as I thought it would be but it is important to have help during your recovery. Was it worth it? Absolutely! I would do it over again in a heartbeat. My only regret was not having it done sooner!

    Take care!
  • I had one 13 years ago. I am small person, I looked like an freak but I also had neck and shoulder pain! 1 1/2 lbs off each side later and WOW! Lets just say, it is like getting new tennis shoes, you run faster jump higher! Plus it adds a bit of awesome to your self esteem!

    I have low back pain now, on the way to fusion. Did not have this issue at all until a year ago. Could not image still having the larger chest and moving around!

    Looks like everyone is in agreement! :O) Go for it!s
