Most Likely, Surgery

Todd has been having back problems for awhile and then really hurt his back in July. He has been going to the chiropractor since mid July and it has not really been helping much. He had an MRI done this past Friday and our family doctor called and informed us today that he needs to go talk to a neurosurgeon to determine if surgery is needed. Our family doctor feels that continuing physical therapy will probably not do any good because he has a bulging disk. The same disc he had surgery on last time but now on the other side. He will go in on Tuesday to his chiropractor and discuss it with him but I really doubt the chiropractor will be able to do anything.
Todd is not happy about this at all, this will be his 2nd back surgery on the same discs.
