i have bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative discs, scoliosis, spinal stenosis. I am not in real pain unless I walk for a while and then I get horrible spasms in my back. I had jury duty a few weeks ago and had to sit and walk all day. It was excruciating! By the time I got hold of my Doctor the trial was over and I didn't need pain pills anymore. I have had 4 injections in my back since November and the ortho told me if this last one didn't work I would probably need surgery. Previously the surgeon told me one disc was "smooshed". He sent me for injections. My question is whether to have surgery or not. I'm not in pain except for when I walk or try to do some cleaning. I can't go to the mall to shop and last year I couldn't take our grandkids to the fair that we do every year. My one grandson is going to the Rose Bowl for band in January and we plan to go but that would be a lot of walking. If I was in pain all the time there would be no question. Any thoughts?
