Posted by brennansgranmom

I am a 51 year old female and have gone from a size10 to a size 14 in 4-6 weeks. The injections did not help my pain and now I am carrying around an extra 15 pounds. Please help me, I am desparate. Most of the weight centered in my belly....I went from a flat stomach to looking like I'm 6 months pregnant.

Do you have an mri.  If your lower back is a problem and you've tried chiropractic and PT (I assume you did since you are getting injections) I wouldn't waste anytime and just do non-surgical spinal decompression.  I have seen nothing short of a miracle with some patients who have utilized this treatment.  Recently they came out with a neck decompression too.
