Re: Need advice back surgery.
What kind surgery are they offering? My husband walks with buliging discs for years now and was told that bulges come and go and no surgery for it even though he suffers a great deal especially with his kind job.
I am sorry you are having so much pain, this is terrible, but only DR can give you an advice what can be done in your particular situation. We all have some kind problems and for each of them we get different surgeries, different treatments. i wish it would be one unique treatment for everyone and it would help everyone, but this just my dream.
Did you try any PT? Did you try to swim which is great for back issues. Acupuncture was very successful for my husband, you need no less than 20-25 treatments though to see any results.
I wish you best luck with whatever you having. Less painful life too!
