I have a question for you.I also have 4 disks in my lower back that are deteriated, a pinched nerve and a bulging disk Right now the doc are trying epideural shots in my spine. But to me thats just like putting a band aid on it.What are they doing for your back? I'm going to UVA hospital. Which is one of the bigger and better hospital in our area.I know we are going to dicuss surgery.I just don't know what to do.I also have osteoarthritis,osteoporosis,fibro and Barrettes esophagus.
