I've never had any so what do I know. I don't even have the injection scheduled and I'm already thinking about the surgery. The question isn't whether I should have the injection versus traction. I think the question is really traction versus surgery. All the injection does is give me some pain relief while my body tries to heal itself. But everyone seems to say that really all injections are a precursor to surgery. No one gets the injection and then just gets better. Surgery always follows injection.
Again, what do I know? But from where I lay, surgery sounds like relief.
