Multi-level disc bulging and herniation
Doctor's all seem to want to wait and see, which is unnerving.  I have disc bulging below vertebrae T2, T9, each, and then also bulging and herniation (dx. by dye injection) at L4, L5, S1 , and nothing has been suggested, for major surgery.  I do take methadone for last 2 years, but only 60 mg day for severe pain at different levels of my back.  This all started in 1999, and I have been on complete disability in US, since 2001.  I do a daily short regimen of back exercises, which are mild as I see them.  They do keep me limber, to a point.  My profile has a bit more pertinent info, I think.  I am at a loss as to why any types of fusion hasn't been suggested, or "pushed" so to speak?.  They always say it's an option, but they recommend waiting to see if things get worse. It's not an insurance issue; I know that for sure.
