I am still having back problems after 1 1/2 yrs. At times it is worse than others. I am on the verge of tears. When the pain hits I just want to give up. I think the Dr that did my last surgery really messed me up. I wish that something could be done to ease the pain. It is getting to the point where PT exercising does not help. Right now I am looking for a Dr. here in Oklahoma that would be able to do another Discogram to see if there are any problems I need to get fixed. I hope they can find the problem and fix it. Next mounth my blue cross and blue shield ins kicks in and I hope then I can find a excellent Dr. Thanks in advance for any info.
