I didn't know where else to post this. I have a friend who says that her doctors said there is absolutely no disk between L-4 and L-5. Yet she cleans her house, shops, drives, takes care of her family with no problems. This isn't possible is it?
It seems to me that she would be in such excrutiating pain that she would need immediate surgery!! I know what DDD feels like as two of my disks were in that condition before my 3 level spinal fusion. And I couldn't do anything but struggle to make it to all my appointments scheduling my surgery!!! Other than that it was all about pain pills and laying on the couch or my bed!!! I couldn't move without crying!!
