Need some help, 1995 my doctor sent me for an MRI because lower back pain after an accident out horse riding.
Result was prolapsed disc.
I was basically left to get on with it over the years.
Just over a year ago my GP sent me on one of these Gym trails for free, I went and the first the gym put me on was just using one of their bikes.
After about 10 minuets to change to something else I couldn't get up, my legs were numb.
After a while the life came back and was OK but I told the gym manager and he told me to see my doctor before I could come back again.
I saw my GP which is a different one from 1995 and she sent me for another MRI on my lower back.
Result 3 prolapsed discs! With 1 of them being at 50% gone, another at lost 20% and the last has lost 15%.
I am in severe pain some times I can't walk for the amount of pain going down my legs.
I saw someone else had asked this question will they go back to normal after a few months and a couple of years!
Mine after 19 years has not! If anything it has got worse!
Matters are made worse as late from having both knees operated on removing part of my meniscus. It has left my knees unstable and have fallen over a few times on my back!
My question is, Will they grow back, get better seeming they haven't in the last 19 years!?
Because again I have been left to get on with it!

Many thanks


Just remembered this and forgot to add it, I also have a cyst on the spinal cord at the base.
