Disc/spine problem
When I consulted a famous doctor in Chennai, he advised me for replacement of entire central disc, replacement of l4, l5 or so stating that they are bulged. I am doing all the work (Police) comfortably without medicine. Now, after a year or two, feeling some abnormal problems like foot numbness, neck pain & knee pain. My near and dears says, surgery means minimizing your life by 10-20 years. Do I need to undergo surgery or is any alternative there? Kindly advice me.
