I had an ACDF back in February this year and about 2 months post-op I started having lower back burning sensations that would radiate to my buttocks. Last week I had a MRI of my lumbar and discovered that I have a couple of mild bulges at L4/5 and L5/S1. I will start PT next week, but was wondering if any of you have been successful in preventing further degeneration through exercise or other intervention: yoga, walking, stretching, pilates, inversion table, etc.
I am freaked out about having to require surgery again, so hope someone has a success story and regimen they can share!
