And they said after surgery I would have anywhere from a 5% to a 15% disability with my back. Id love to get it done but theres no way I can afford it.
The doc said if I could maybe build up my core muscles more it would possibly decrease the pain by 5% but the pain would always be there unless I had surgery.
