Re: Collapsed Disc
While I do not know of the "glue option", I think the main issue here is pain management, not fixing the discs. Surgery is not an option, and to be honest, this procedure may not be either. He shouldn't have to go through more than he has to right now. That being said, please find him a good pain specialist. A good PM would use many different treatments such as meds, injections, PT, ect.
He needs to have his pain controlled while the two of you research his options. Sometimes it can take a while to get and appt, or to find the right doctor for him, so start now! Get him comfortable, then look at the options. It is very tempting to rush into treatments when the pain is severe.
Good luck, and I hope he finds a great doctor that can provide some relief very soon!
