Spondylolisthesis, degenerated herniated disc L5-s1, treatment suggestions?
Diagnosed with severe chronic degenerative disc disease l5-s1 due to grade 1 spondylolisthesis. Disc is also herniated and I have narrow something or other thAt is causing chronic swelling on nerve on right side and mild on the left. Done Chiro & physical therapy, have a nerve root block scheduled.
I'm active, play volleyball, softball, and any other adult sports I can. Any suggestions about what route to take that wld still allow me to be active? Got pain in rear on both sides and pain & tingling down right leg. Dr says if nerve block doesn't work, we hav to look into surgery.
Suggestions wld be greatly appreciated, alternatives to surgery or if surgery what kind to keep me moving? I'm lost and confused, my orthopedic dr spent 30 seconds with me, had to have my chiropractor explain the MRI results to me. Please give me some advise!!! Thanks
