I am Andy I have had two operations repairing discs in my lumbar spine, L5 S1,L4 L3 L2 (2003 & 2004). I now am having problems further up and have absolutely no curve in my lumbar region.
At the moment I am in acute pain,I have seen the doctor he prescribed the usual,anti-spasm(diazepam) oramorph,and anti inflammitery pills. I do take hydracodiene and anti inflamm regularly and have never been pain free.These latest pills however aren't having any effect and the pain seems to be coming on every 4 to 6 weeks.
I was diagnosed with DDD and am concerned now that sooner or later it will get worse. I have read that most DDD is caused by twisting rotation etc mine was caused by an impact injury, does this make a difference?
Anybody any thoughts,
