Suffering back pain, advised back surgery. Is it necessary ? - Online Doctor Chats
how can I help you?
My father is suffering from pain in back.
We have consulted a local doctor. He asked for reports and MRI scan. After looking at report he is suggesting to go through a back surgery
I want to know that is it really necessary to go through that surgery??
I can send you the MRI report
Please forward the report to YYYY@YYYY with subject as "Attn: Dr. AAAAA'
sending you in a moment
I have sent it
it should be in your inbox in 1 mnt
Once the customer care receives it, they will forward it to me.
Medicines can help only to an extend actually.
They do not change the structural deformities.
They just help in pain relief and calcium supplementation.
ok, and exercises only are not enough??
Exercise will help in strengthening the muscles.
have you received that report?
i got it
Ok. Please wait. I will be receiving the report now.
I am having difficulty in receiving the mail from the customer care team.
ok is that possible to reply on my email address after you review it??
Please, can you send it to YYYY@YYYY
Sorry, we cannot do that.
sent u on ur personal ID
Thanks. Let me see.
I have received your mail. Let me take a look at it.
I have gone through the reports that you have sent.
There seems to be structural abnormalities found on the MRI
particularly the disc bulge causing compromise to the nerves.
And canal stenosis.
I believe these has to be taken care of by surgical intervention.
oh ok.. So Surgery is required
that is what I feel after looking at the reports.
one out of the scope question, this surgery is covered in Medicalim?
I would also suggest you to visit another orthopedic surgeon, who can check your dad again and then could give a proper second opinion regarding this.
ok will do that ...
Yes. ususally the spinal surgeries are covered in mediclaim.
Thank you very much for the quick response.
You are welcome.
Hope I was helpful.
Is there anything else that I could help you on?
