Well there's your problem

I caint get no relief.

Like the lyrics suggest, I am in constant pain. You can see in the image, that's one of the images from my MRI a month ago, I have discs bulging in the L4/L5 and L5/S1.

Two weeks ago I had an epidural injection of cortisone directly into the area. It didn't help. I had this done last October and had a lot of relief. None this time.

So, now I'm facing real surgery -- though apparently it's still outpatient. They cut off the part of the disc that bulging to provide instant relief to the nerves. I talk with a neurosurgeon today and we'll see what comes from that. Hopefully I can end this soon.
