Re: OT/MRI Results

    You know Andrea there are folks with disc problems who never know it .
Unfortunately that's not you or my daughter for that matter. She has some
cervical disc problems. Your doctor is right don't jump at surgery it is not

the inflammation go down and keep surgery as a very last resort.
