I am 61 yrs. old and was injured on the job this past June. To make it sort I have injured my lower back.L3 to S1..along with naturally occuring DDD. Have finally seen a very top rated surgeon in Anchorage and he wants to operate.
I am really tired of the pain and inability to function as normal, but really scared of having the operation..Reading alot of things on here really" freak me out".Seems like alot of the times surgery makes things worse.
Any encoraging words.
