      I have my 1st discectomy end of the month. What went wrong with yours? What am I looking at?

      So far I've been told that I have 2 many issues on 2 many levels and they can't help me w surgery. I have just about everything you can have in the back. Standing and walking are a chore. I've signed up for SSD so I can eventually have some financial help. It takes awhile tho. It sux 2 feel this way daily knowing there's nothing they can do. I'm still fighting tho. Next is rheumo and neurosurgeon . I am in physical therapy and take Lyrica and Duloxetine . It helps some at least.

      I can't say I understand exactly but I also have spinal stenosis along with degenerative disc and joint diseases and fibromyalgia. I just had my lumbar nerve ablation on my right side and have my ablation on my left tomorrow. My doctor said that if this doesn't work I'll probably be looking at rods and possibly spinal fusion. I do understand your pain, though, and wish I could do something to help with your pain.
