hubby is about 1 year post back surgery (disc removal by neurosurgeon). was told he should feel better in 6 weeks and could go back to regular lifting. he's still in major pain. pain doc did second MRI and said his back is a "mess." pain doc suggests that epidural injections will break up scar tissue which is causing his pain. hubby is reluctant and very skeptical after having gone through surgery and feeling it was not successful. pre-surgery, hubby had 4 steroid injections but only the 1st one gave him relief.
