I have a question i had lower back surgery in august of 2005. They took the bottom 2 out and didnt put nothing in thier place do they usually do this? Ever since i had surgery i still can hardly walk and im in constant pain which they call it chronic pain. I was just wondering if they would have put somthing back in their spots maybe i wouldnt be having so much trouble now. My left leg is still numb and tingling my family wants me to get a 3rd opinion at my second opinion the doc said by the time im 50 i will be in a wheelchair and i now have degenerative disc disease i just dont see how a 3rd opinion can help. Im depressed enough about being in a wheelchair by the time im 50 im only 36. I also have a lump in my lower back next to where they did the surgery they sent me for mris and a ct scan and the mri says its a cyst the ctscan said its a theocal sac that is growing i dont understand why there is no surgery to help i cant live like this forever. The doc said my back is like a 60 yr old right now what happens when im 80? I guess i will be in a wheelchair by then. I was just wondering if anyone elses was like this. One of my husbands friends mother had 1 disc removed and they put something in its place so why if i had 2 taken wouldnt they put something back in there doesnt make sense to me thanks suzie

I have my maxed amount of epidural shots of my cervical DDD....(and no one cares about my lumbar DDD)..... I've done physical therapy, muscle relaxers, Amitriptyline, Nortryptiline, desipramine.....narcotics... So I decided to go to a spine specialist and they have me on Gabapentin. Its been two weeks and it did nothing for my lumbar ever... but it did seem to help my cervical and arm/hand pain...
