I have degenritive disks in Lumbar spine also anular tears. Sciatic nerve pain also involved. Recently had worst week of my life. I was in so much pain. I could barely walk had to use a cain. Sitting hurt, standing hurt, laying down on back or eithr side hurt. Burning throbing pain jetting down my back side. down my both legs. I finally got to see my doctor and he gave me morphine 15mg and flexeril 5 mg I feel a bit better but still not really that great. He told me that my condition is spread out amoung my 3 lower disks. That they only do Surgery if the damage is Concentrated to one area. So my condition is chronic and I am not a canidate for surgery. I just have to accept my pain and mangae my pain. Up until now anytime my body had a problem they could fix it with surgery. Now Medical Doctors are telling me that surgery is not going to help me. Im having a difficult time accepting this prognosis from my Doctor. Why is my condition not fixable with surgery? I dont get it?
