Positive discogram at 4 levels

Has anyone tested positive at 4 levels in the lumbar region? If so, we're you told your back is too bad for surgery? What do you do to cope when you're 43 & have lived with chronic back pain for 23 years?

    Surgeon refuses to touch me with 4 levels positive on discogram. He suggested I continue with my pain management dr that I've been seeing for 15 years. I had an epidural injection today & can have another in 2 weeks. It amazes me with all the technology they can't fix 4 levels. I am 43 & have had bad back problems with multiple surgeries & injections for 20 years. I guess I will go back to work & hope for the best. I don't know how long my body will be able to continue with my job but am hoping for the best.
