Wow! Thank you both for your replies. My appointment went very well. I did find out I have 4 herninated (sp?) disks L5 through L2. The doctor I am seeing is an anesthesiologist who has his own pain & surgery center. He has a very good reputation. I had some sort of steroid/anti inflamatory injection that he gave me in my lower back. I do feel some better but I have another appointment already set up for the second one as I still have pain when sitting and cant do so for long.
Usually I would pay more attention to what the procedure is or do more research on it but to tell you the truth I havent much cared what the doctors do as long as it is something that will help this pain. I am getting ready to turn 35 in a few weeks and I dread to think of how I will feel a year from now or even 10 yrs from now. Sheesh!
