Can any one give me any advise please, I am going out of my mind with worry. I am 41 years old and last year had a bad car accident and have suffered with my back ever since. I have been having Physion for 6 months with no relief and 2 months ago had to spend a week in hospital it was so severe. I have lower back pain travelling to my right buttock, into my groing down my right leg to my right foot.
I have finally had my MRI Scan that shows a few problems but the conclusion at the bottom reads...There appears to be a trabsitional lumbo sacral vertebra which I take to be L5. There is a Moderate disc protrusion at L4/5 which is predominantly right sided and is compressing the right L5 nerve root and right Anterior Thecal Sac. Mild desiccation change noted at L2/3 AND L3/4. Some degenerate changes also noted at T10/11.
I have now started having problems controlling my bladder, I had to take another visit to the Hospital 2 wks ago because of the numbess and pain and the Doc said my bladder problems were nothing to do with my back problem but my GP is saying it does. I am on a waiting list to see a Spinal Surgeon but the pain and the bladder problems are just not getting any better. Has anyone else had any problems like the above. Any advise would be really appreciated.
