I am SO tired of doctors & their ever present need to feel like they are gods! I have had a bulging disc in my spine for many years. I went (after numerous other doctors took a look at me) to the Hershey Medical center in PA (supposedly the best in the industry) & their only solution was to operate... that meant going thru the front of my neck to replace the bulging disc with an artificial one! Not try therapy first, lets do the $100K operation!
I looked at the long list of possible problems that could occur - heres a few of the worst:
loss of movement of my head side to side
my voice could change OR I could lose it completely
partial paralysis or even better yet, TOTAL paralysis!
They insisted I needed to do this surgery & said I would not be able to function after 5 years or so, but only after I sign a waiver that states they are not liable for the outcome! ARE YOU F**KIN NUTS??? I continued to live with the back pain & finally visited a chiropracter that a friend recommended that took care of me naturally with no surgery! Now granted the pain still comes & goes but hey I am still in one piece & able to do things I could do 20 years ago!!!
