I am just wondering what your pain level was ( 1-10 ) scale before surgery. I have had pain that brought me to my knees but lately it is just a dull ache with occasional shooting pains to my feet. My disc is very badly damaged.... Am I just used to the pain or should I not have surgery until I am in intense pain again. I don't know what do to.
I would have to say my pain level hovers between a 3-5 but about twice a year I do something to really put myself in a world of hurt for a week or so and if my pain level isn't a 10 then it must be a 20.
any help appreciated
