This is a roller coaster ride
First, I apologize for my misspellings in my last post. I am on an I-pad. Ok. I have bad ddd and was told by a very reputable and conservative neurosurgeon I needed surgery on a herniated disc and a decompression for a disc osteophyte complex pressing on nerves." Your nerves are compressed and will cause permanent leg weakness if not operated on. " Then a second opinion said continue water therapy and wait. I have been in pain at an 8 for the last 6 months, with low back pain for two years. Now I have a really good day today(great!) and am doubting if I need surgery. I need to trust the neurosurgeon doctor and not doubt myself and my pain. Tomorrow I will probably hurt because I walked and went to target store! Then I will realize I need surgery! Up and down, surgery and then no surgery-an emotional roller coaster! Advice please.
