I went to see a surgeon and by looking at my M.R.I., he said if he operated, it wouldn't be long until I would be needing again and again. He had me go to phyical therepy first and that did get rid of my pinched nerve pain, but that's all. Then he sent to a pain center where they gave me a shot in my spine. Nothing has helped so far but they me to take another shot in November.
