32 years old with degenerative disc disease...
I am 32 years old and have had back pain for the past 10 years. I have had 2 MRI's in the past 2 years and my condition has gotten significantly worse in the past year. I have degenerative disc disease along with several bulging discs and pinched nerves. I have tried medication, massage therapy, cortizone injections, but it seems to only be getting worse. I am now seriously considering back surgery for my condition. I have tried everything that Dr.'s have suggested and nothing is helping. The pain is chronic and unbearable. Its depressing and causing problems with my job as well as everyday activities.
I have been researching different surgeries, doctors, recovery, and Im still at a bit of a loss about where to go next. If anyone has advice, experience, doctor info or input, good or bad, PLEASE help me out and tell me about your experience!! Thank you so much!
