Nathan ---trust me I know the feeling ---the pain I was in every day was over a year --the last few month before surgery ---pain was so bad i wouldnt wish on my worst enemy ---but trust me if the esi #3 --dont work u need to pursue something that will give you the quality of life back. Nobody will do this for you have to be your own advocate. It took me months of being jerked around before i even got a mri ---because all 4 disc were pressed against spinal cord all 3 doc said surgery or i would be parlyzed. In your case really i can tell is from pinched nerve so if # 3 shot dont workt ---seek out dmx 9000 ---i have heard ppl suffer 10 to 20yrs did btw 10 or 20 treatments and have been pain free for several years now plus its non-invasive machine. Its again might cost out of pucket but i would find away-- because mentally and physically --you can only handle pain so long before its going to take a huge toll on you and your family. You cant put a price on that --even if u have to fianace it. Dont give up!!!! Dont listen to one person oppinion before u exhausted all measures. If i were in your shoes and surgery wasnt option I would do it in a heartbeat.

You need to know, tho that you will NOT be PAIN FREE. There is always still some pain after surgery. Surgery is just for mechanical problems. Surgery isn't for pain. So you will still have pain after surgery, and sometimes it's even worse than before surgery.

Just wanted you to know that. Hugs, Lee
