Greetings everyone,

I am very new at this and find it hard to believe I have Spondylolysis.
My MRI reports reads: Spondylolysis with 2mm of spondylolisthesis at L5-S1
Spina bifida occula at L5

My pain is there all the time.
I have to see a neuosurgeon and get his opinion for further treatment.
I hope everyone a good day, and give me advice about how to cope with the constant pain!!

Do you find this discussion helpful?

I have been dealing with chronic back pain for over 5 years. After all of this time I thought my body would get more used to the pain but it hasnt. As long as you have a good doctor they will help you in every way possible. I will let you know that the emergency room can be your best friend on those nights that you just cant take the pain anymore. As long as they know about your condition they will usually give you the proper drugs to deal with it for the time being. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at jsb82779@yahoo.com. Put something in the subject line so I know who you are. Good luck with your journey.
