25yo Male here.
I initially had L5 pars interarticularis fractures that didn't heal so I had surgery on them around 10 years ago. This is a pretty regular problem/surgery...

I gym around 4 times a week focusing on the never ending rehab. Over the past few years the pain has been getting worse so I went to a GP, plus physio, then a specialist, and ultimately had an MRI.

I have a "posterior bulge that indents the ventral theca and abutting the ventral cord surface" at T10/11 and T11/12. Additionally, "flattening of the ventral theca at L4/L5 with some fluid in the facet joint recesses"

The specialist told me to take a panadol and that this is 'my lot in life', however, I am getting very little sleep and I am in constant pain.
I know these are pretty minor problems compared to some peoples back issues, but I don't really see the point of living like this for another what could be 60+ years.

Does anyone know of any other treatments for this sort of this, or at least some way of managing the pain better?
