The painkillers that I was taking now didn’t seem to be doing much anymore, so back to see my GP. We decided to obtain a second opinion from another respected surgeon. Another referral was done and after a few weeks I was off seeing Dr Paul Licina at SpinePlus.
The outcome was pretty much the same, was again advised that I have multilevel lumbar degenerative disc disease and there is surgical option available. The doctor referred to a pain management specialist, who has changed my pain medication once more. He also advised that I see a physio to help me further.
So another appointment was to be made, this time with a physio at Fortus Health.
