33 yrs old here. was told Oct.13th 2004 that I had sever DDD in my back and there was way too much damage to operate and that I wasnt even a candadate because of my Asthma, pulmanary Hypertension, Diabetic Type 2 , Neuropathy. Sciatic nerve damaage. due to a bone fragment that broke off somewhere in L4-L5 thats slicing my nerve in half. And since 2004 . It has spead to my entire back from S1- C2 and now my neck. I cant walk for the first cpl hrs after I wake in the morning without my lovely walker. And somedays I cant even get out of bed. I take Ibuprofen like candy. because they wont give me pain meds here in this State unless I let my wonderful Dr. Give me injections , in witch I refuse. So, I also take flexerile and what ever else I can find . If I dont stop moving all day then IM ok. but once I try and sit and rest . Then I cant stand back up right away or walk right away.Area's of my legs and feet and lower stomache have no feeling and my bladder is so week im incontinent sometimes .OOh yes and I have chronic Bronchitis alot and Stomach problems .no gallbladder. so am on meds for the rest of my life for that High blood pressure. IDK , but I take 7 meds a day for the rest of my life.God for bid they should give me a pain med that will at least take the edge off the pain. I have lower lumber DDD, Thoracic DDD , And Cervical DDD. They said if they did try and operate , it would be 10-15yrs of back to back operations that would not heal right because of all my other health problems and the fact that diabetics dont heal fsst. Any options for me? please. Im open for anything.
