    My Mom needs them! She has been off work for two weeks due to her back hurting! MRI just revealed issues with all five parts of her lower back with narrowing on the left side of the spine. Three bulging disc.Waiting to find out when she goes to see neurosurgeon. She has told me that she will not have surgery! Stubborn, I know! Both of my parents are!
    Thanks for your prayers!

    I'm praying for her. My empathy as well as I have recurrent pain pro blems. My insurance allows chiropractor visits and my chiro really does a great piece of work. Has she considered this?

    I wish her the best and pray for her. I also have a few bulging discs, no surgery yet for me. It gets better if you lose weight (If you are overweight like I was). The sciatica stinks. [​IMG]
