Streak! 92 05/25/2019 11:43AM

Prayers sent Barry. I have had two back surgeries but if you can do shots and therapy to relieve the pain that is the way to go. Only take Nsaids with food on your stomach. (n/t)

David Croft 91 05/25/2019 12:10AM

Good nsaids, tub soaks,back exercises, and sleeping on hardwood floors helped me tremendously when I was younger with my own lumbar disc problems. I hope it fades away and you can avoid surgery. Good luck Barry. (n/t)
