Back Update

I went to see my back doctor yesterday for my follow-up to the lumbar discography procedure/CT that I had done earlier this month. Got some stronger pain meds that finally work. The downside is that it's not covered by insurance, I can't drive and still shouldn't do much while on them to spare my bad disc from any more damage. Nice huh? Also, I have about an 80% chance of success with a disc replacement, so we are now moving forward with finding a surgeon. Although I'm not looking forward to surgery, I need to get this done and I'm optimistic about the results. Stay tuned...
