Saw the back Doc...

Post by krd » Mon Aug 28, 2006 6:05 pm

Hey Everyone

I saw my back Doc today. A guy from the Rothman Institute. Great guy, very professional. Anyway, after testing my leg strength and muscle control, he feels that surgery is not the option right now :P I am going to get an epidural injection next week. He says that the success rate is 70% and that I am a good candidate for this. I will let you know. Be posting.

Good news, Ken!! :D

Can you go into more detail, what precisely your doctor saw that indicated surgery was not the best option now, for you?

Thanks, Randolph
