I have DDD DX . They said it would not get any worse after sixty. I also have cystic kidney disease and was wondering if the pain can be related I have a slew of cysts the biggest one is around 9cm or the size of a baseball they say and a whole bunch of grape looking ones.
For the last few years I have been monitoring their growth. I was wondering if it could be pushing on the nerves in my back.
My lower lumbar 2&3 are real close together and it is too painfull to excercize.
Although I had every opportunity to go in the pool I never did the swimming I opted to sit or stay out of the heat. But lifting is becoming a memory and walking any distance thing of the past.
I really don't trust them enough to go under the knife. But my urologist gave me some tiger patches he had on hand and they seemed to help so did icy hot heat patches but it is temporary relief. I wish they had plastic back bones and rubber kidneys. }:)
