I have a mild disc buldge according to MRI with no nerv impingement so i'm happily going along improving with my TMS studies and i discovered his site. I'm not sure i've read it right or wrong but under surgery tab and decision making he has thing listed which are "structural problems" and "more likely to be painful" < why has he wrote it like that, people viewing this part of the site can give people an excuse to feel pain. I've had a 24 hour freak out since i found that site. However my MRI only states "mild disc buldge" with "annular tear" - I've been told this is normal. http://www.backincontrol.com/ (Back in Control – The DOC (Direct your Own Care) Project) was the website, i really think he should just ditch that surgery tab, what a nightmare. I'm an idiot and just click straight for the surgery tab. I have concluded i would avoid surgery however i dont need that freak out. Anyway should i read his book, anyone read back in control? is it good to read for disc buldges? or is he going to say stuff like... yeah it may or may not be a problem etc. Maybe i've got this all wrong. Sarno was perfect, he just basically says doesn't matter whats up with your back.
