How long have you done physical therapy/conservative treatment?
And what kind of procedure are they talking about doing? Fusion of some sort or is it one of the minimally invasive procedures where they are just cleaning up a disc?
And what's the issue with your disc? Is it just bulging/herniated and causing back pain or are you having radiating leg pain/weakness as well?
I did PT for about 2 months, and have continued the exercises and stretching for about 6 months.
MRI showed a bulging disc, pain has been radiating down my leg into my calf. Not sure what procedure they would perform, just want to see what my options are. Pain is almost unbearable now and I'm getting desperate.
edit: 2 back injections didn't do much at all.
