    Thanks again for all the prayers. My dad is home now and taking pain meds and muscle relaxers. He is due for an appointment with the neurosurgeon again tomorrow.

    Basically now what they are doing is trying to figure out the best course of action to treat his bulging disk. I guess the ER doctor suggested surgery, but the neurosurgeon thinks that is overkill at this point.

    I'm not a doctor, but if it's only bulging, and there are no other signs of deterioration, they'll probably forgo surgery and opt for physical therapy. Maybe a dose of steroids to reduce the swelling before PT starts. A bulge can heal on its own, and they might be more likely to do non-invasive procedures first.

    In any event, my best to him and his recovery.
