Hey there....how did your son's appointment go with the doctor?
I had to have a L4-5 fusion with bone graft this last October 20008. Before that I had fallen down my stairs 4 times and yes it made the herniated disk worse! I feel for him!
My son is scheduled for his first consultation tomorrow regarding a bulging L5-S1 disc and subsequent pain, numbness. Unfortunately, yesterday he fell on his steps and hit his tailbone directly and now is in a great deal of pain dealing with this.
Question: Does anyone out there know whether or not this tailbone injury will affect his other problem (bulging disc) L5-S1. He will feel like an idiot going to the doc tomorrow in so much pain.
Thanks for any info:
