I had the accurascope procedure performed over three weeks ago to repair bulging and protruding discs in my low back. The procedure was done on 4 levels. I had pain normally after exertion or repeated bending. The pain is now constant and has increased significantly. I need to take pain killers a few times a day. I can not sit or stand for an extended period of time. I am very much regretting having this procedure done. I hope this won't permanently be my life.View Thread
I had the AccuraScope Procedure at North American Spine about three weeks ago. They operated on 4 levels for bulging and protruding discs. I am in more pain now then before the surgery. I can not sit or stand for more than 15 minutes. I am taking pain killers several times a day. Before the surgery, I only had pain when engaged in activities. It was never constant. I hope this is not my life.View Thread
