Re: Disc Protrusion L5/S1

Hello AndreaS84,

I appreciate your thoughts. I've burried my head in research as well. The surgeon I saw recommended another injection, since they have helped me to this point. I just can't have another until January. I was pain free for 5 years, so my issue started now six years ago, and I can't change that. I do think as long as I'm seeing progress that surgery should be a last option. I haven't thrown it out completely, but it doesn't always make us better, and the surgeon was fairly blunt about that. So, it seems reasonable to keep doing conservative measures for right now.
