Default It's a coin toss but

I must say give conservative therapy a try for at least six moths. My herniation went down a lot, but not enough. I waited for the technology since in 04 this was brand new here. Funny thing I can swear my surgeon said they used cadaver discs but I must of heard wrong. When I went to him again for my cadaver disc they told me he was a cadaver. I guess skiing didn't agree with him.but they say try conservative therapy for a bit. I'm guessing I could have made it without surgery if I wasn't on Oxy n working construction. I just destroyed my back more. They use to tell me slow down kid they don't pay you extra to work hard. That old man was right. When I got hurt again they laid me off.
12/22/04 blew L4-5 and L5-S1 out lifting wrong
4/1/05 back to work thanks to Oxy
11/11/13 hurt back lifting again
6/6/15 last of many MRI L4-5 medium paracentral bulge with juice leaking and mid to left bulge on L5-S1
No invasive procedures except steroid shots that did nothing n hurt wicked bad
