Chronic back pain

Hello my name is Ron aka ronbakerman.I had my first back fusion surgery for a herniated disc ,due to herniated disc disease Well this was way back in 1990 when honestly didnt know much. I have high hopes for anyone who is unfortunate enough to get this problem anytime soon or before you have your first surgery. Find a good neurosurgeon in a major city,I can not express that offense to small town ones but it is what it is.
I would be glad to pass on what I have experienced and learned and lived through over the past 24 yrs. It may take a day or two to respond since I am unable to go on the web everyday due to those days I just can cope with my pain. I will try to get in the habit of checking this site,I dont know if i will get a email informing me of a request because I am new at this but I think it can be helpful to me and I hope I can be helpful to some fellow members.
I recently found a article about a dr. in Connecticut who has a new and amazing way to fix and cure a herniated disc that is leaking the fluid from the center of the disc. This is a huge discovery and very encouraging .
Thank You,for your time


  • I've tracked down many 'New & Amazing' procedures, I've never found one that actually seems to be working in any real way. My last big waste of time was 'Stem Cell' & 'Plasma Rich therapy'. I know that herniated discs are only part of my problem but I would love to find a very real solution that would work for me. I have no way of knowing if anything (PT, standard procedures etc) have slowed the distruction but you have to try...

    As you can tell I've lost faith in 'new & amazing', there just doesn't seem to be a magic bullet out there at the moment. It would be great it a solution could be found for herniated discs, arthritis, nerve conditions etc soon. We can only live in hope! (& research like crazy before we put our faith & $$$$ out there)

    Hi Ron, it's great to have another very experienced member here. I'm sorry, it sounds like pain is taking its toll at the moment. You won't receive a mail. Just check back & chat. That's how it works ;-)
