How common is spondylolthesis in people in there mid 20?
I am just curious. I have looked everywhere to find this out. I wonder how often people are diagnosed with this condition?
I never had any trauma in my life. Never had an injury growing up. So I have never had an x-ray. Up until April, I never complained of back problems. I got diagnosed with grade 3-4 spondy in February, after having aggrivated leg pain. My symtoms since then, have changed pretty fast from left leg pain ( pain management injections fixed it) to right leg numbess when walking ( pain management isn't fixing the numbness). I still can do everyday activity with almost no pain. But I think it is very rare that I have such a high grade with barely any pain. Many doctors think I should have surgery cause of the high grade but my nuero and DO think I should wait. I had an xray, that shows my condition is stable. I currently take ultram when needed and do pain management and pt.
Would you wait to have surgery if you where me? How common is this condition?
