:H Hello, this is my very first time posting on this site. I live in Georgia, about 40 miles n/e of Atlanta. I have had severe pain in the L3-L5 region of my back and I am at the end of my rope dealing with the pain. I was diagnosed with DDD about 3 years ago. I have had about 5 epidural steroid injections since 2006, the last one on 8/27/08.
I have not been perscribed any pain meds in the event this was not any better, and I am wondering if surgery isn' my next step? I want to walk, but I can't stand it after 15 minutes. :''(
Can anyone give me any insights on what to do next? I am so glad I found this site!
