Trust me-- Paul's advice is 100% on the money. I just had my second
round of injections in my back yesterday morning and go for the third in
two weeks. Can't tell if they are helping or not yet, but pretty sure I
am facing surgery sometime in the fairly near future. I didn't "throw
mine out" though. According to the doc, it is from 30 years of hard use.
Discs totally worn out on my right side, something happening with the
sciataic(?) nerve-- unbelievable pain from my hip to my big toe. Heed
Paul's words-- it isn't worth it! Larry.
