I am not new to back and neck pain, as I had an ACDF of C5/6 last year in my cervical spine.
I have had back pain in one specific spot for about 6 years now. It finally radiated around to the front, on the bottom of my rib cage and top of stomach. So the pain management doc finally ordered an MRI of the T spine, and here are the results:
1) Small midline T4-T5 disc herniation without cord impingement.
2) Small left T6-T7 disc herniation abutting the left ventral lateral cord and minimally flattening it.
Does this mean surgery? Or pain for the rest of my life?
Thanks everyone...I appreciate it.
