Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and would like a little more information on DDD. For starters I am 17 years old. Back in august 2011 I was in a car accident which caused me to have horrible lower back pain, had an MRI done and yesterday I was diagnosed with servere degenerative disc disease and steneois. My L5-S1 disc is completely gone, i'm basically bone to bone right now. I really do not know much about this and just whnt the doctor said. I have done some research on the internet but I would like some personal stories. Also how common is it for a disc to be completely gone at such a young age. Im rather worried right now.
