I was out of commission but now I am "back" on track!

When you have bulging discs in the L2-3,4-S1 areas of the spine and the pain is so bad that it drops you on the floor and you cannot get up or move and you're having to lay there in miserable agony while feeling the nerves pulsate with agonizing pain that it leaves you feeling breathless......well it was time to have it taken care of professionally and medically. Things are so much better now and I have good mobility and I can bend pretty good again! Things can finally get back to normal again!

Epidural? Cause been there, done that, and it's helped. L4-L5. Glad you're feeling better.

Glad to hear you're better.

My stepdad is going in to have 8 bolts drilled into his spine on Dec. 7th. It is for slipping discs that are way past the slippage allowances.

He writhes in pain constantly and has shooting pains into his foot.

He's on constant morphine now and the surgery has an 85% success rate so we're hoping for the best.

He had a Medtronics stimulator implanted into his back which was done last year but has outlived its usefulness.

I'm so glad I just have a hiatal hernia. He goes through hell everyday.
