I just found out that I have a herniated disc in my thoracic vertebrae. It's right between my shoulder blades. I had no trauma to cause this. I have had two fusion surgeries in my lumbar L4&5, and cervical C7&8. My doctor said there is no surgery to fix this because it's too close to the spinal cord, and could cause paralyze me. Any suggestions or restrictions I should know? I have osteoarthritis very bad.
