I talked to someone who is a radiologist and he offered to look at my MRI. Said its a pretty bad L4-L5 disc herniation. He said the disc jelly is coming out and falling down my spine. Pain was once unbearable but now can be described as bearable but with constant discomfort.
I'm about to have a check up with my neurologist after my 2nd unnsuccesful round of physical therapy. When do you know its time to talk surgery? How long until I should give up on this healing on its own? Any questions I should ask? I've never had surgery before. I can live with this and don't like the idea of amputating a piece of my disc but I've been sleeping on the floor for almost 5 months and wouldn't mind getting in the bed again.
