Back Problems board

[CENTER]Hi there!

Thank you for stopping by. I am 20 yr. old male 150 lbs. I have had pain in my back due to a pinched nerve. I am at the moment taking Tylenol 3 and Oxycocet. I have tried Physio, Cortisone shots, and other anti-inflamatory drugs. I have finally got an appointment to get a microdisectomy by my surgeon who is a specialist when it comes to the back and spine. I am scheduled for a morning surgery on Weds. May 10th. What should I do? Go with it? or no? I am desperately lost and no idea what to do. Please help me.[/CENTER]

Somebody told me it was just due to stress and all I need is a distraction but I have been taking Oxycocet and Tylenol 3 like M&Ms and that's all I can do. I cannot stand the pain anymore and all that I am looking for is suggestions from people and any risks and complications. Thank you for your input, It's much appreciated. :-)
