I'm here to spread the news that. Despite its bad reputation with people Back surgery works like a charm.
When I was 23, I injured my back lifting weights I began to have chronic back pain I researched what was the best thing for back pain And yoga came to the top
At age 28, I began 8 years of yoga That I practiced every day My back pain was reduced until my age of 35
When yoga eventually failed I moved in to physical therapy That worked into my late 40s
I was rear ended in a car accident, With the car entirely totaled.
That was the beginning of the end.
Nothing "alternative" worked anymore I felt like there were razorblades in my groin
I would fall for no apparent reason And then could not stand back up I went to my doctor about it He said if I got a MRI, that surgery would be the next step Since surgery has such a bad reputation I skipped the MRI
I was riding horses at the time One day, I went to get a horse in the pasture I kept falling and could not stand I thought it was due to the mud. I had to crawl through the mud and horse **** To get back to the barn.
I thought once I was on concrete That I could stand But I couldn't The stable manager helped me To the office. I rested for half and hour And then drove home.
We were watching TV In our downstairs family room I went to go upstairs And in the middle of the stairs My legs stopped working
We drove to the ER I had an emergency MRI It showed that my disc was entirely extruded And surrounding my spinal cord.
I went for emergency back surgery. The procedure was called a microdiscectomy They just took the gel Away from my spinal cord And within 2 hours of surgery I could walk again. I noted how easy it was to walk.
After a few weeks of just weird stuff Like lightning bolts down my legs, My back entirely healed Within 6 weeks And that was the end of 27 years Of back pain.
I often tell young people that I had an extruded disc that Was older than they are!!
It's been 5 years now and my back is cured. If back surgery did not have Such a bad reputation, I could have saved myself a lot of pain
Microdiscectomy has a 95% cure for referred pain In my case, it had a 30% cure rate for back pain I am in the lucky 30%
Back surgery does work And every year There are more advances.
I went to my surgeon And gave him a present And a big hug of thanks.
