My neurosurgeon is hoping to avoid having to operate on my bulging disc in my thoracic spine. He’s giving me until March to try physical therapy, but if I don’t improve or get worse, he recommends we schedule surgery then. Operating on the thoracic spine is much more complicated than other parts of the spine and higher risk.

I’m scared, but at least there’s something I can do. #SpinalFusion #myleopathy #Arthritis #ChronicSpinePain
