My Mom is suffering from Slip Disc, Pressing On Nerve Chronic Lower Back Pain Since 5 years. We have shown her to many doctors, but all of them have recomended to get operated. Is operation the only way out of this problem. We all are very much tensed about this 'cause it's a very critical operation which is some where linked to the Brain. And if at all she gets operated, will she be absolutely normal? Will she be able to do her own work? Will there be any side effects? Could u please suggest me if U have any other way out of this.
I'll be grateful to U if U do so.
Waiting for Ur reply.
