I hurt my back 10 weeks ago lifting a heaving water cooler.
At first, I did not rest much, and didn't improve.
Over the last month I have been more careful.
The pain is still there and 2 docs say it's in the disk.
Based on MRI showing disk protruding and
PE showing pain when I bend over. Had old MRI for
Comparison it also shows disk protruding but back then
I had no pain. One Doc said pt would help because my back
Is always tense and relieving tension would aid healing.
Wondering your opinion on long this could take to heal and
Thoughts on fusion or ADR surgery. Thanks
ould do and how long this could take
To heal before it's considered chronic. Also thoughts on fusion and ADR
Surgery if it comes to that. Thanks
