Have suffered with back pain for 40 yrs. I had back surgery in 1976 for a disk problem. The surgery did not go well. I have been told recently that the meds given during the time I had surgery caused some the pain .After an MRI recently, the doctor told me that every disk is budging. I am considering a spine stimulator.
