I have had pain for 10 years but in 2005 it became hell. I was 325 and was diagnosed with this:
"Preservation of lumbar lordosis
L4-L5 focal central disk herniation moderately deforms the thecal sack.
L5-S1 central disk herniation with extrusion centrally and inferiorly.
Results in moderate thecal sac compression."
Could some one help me better understand that? I have lived in fear of losing B/B functions.
Since that day i was given those results i now weight 255 and have much less pain but the past few days have been bad. Not so much classic sciatica pain but just crushing radiating back pain in the L4-L5 region. It just got me thinking about my situation and i was looking on google and found this site. It has so much information. I look froward to becoming apart of this group.
