Hi Everyone (|:
New to the forum, have posted under leg and back pain, but thought I would also write in here. Im a Type II Diabetic, post Cervical CA from 2001, (loss of one kidney from my CA) and have severe DDD with Spondolithesis L4-5 I'm 50 years old. I have daily constant pain down my legs and alot of pain in my hip area that chooses the left or right side. Mornings are terrible as I can hardly move. This condition has started since last Oct, but only in the last month has the pain so intense. Had Cat/MRI X-rays and seen Spine Doc all telling me to lose weight and the pressure will be better. They also mentioned that the spine can fuse together in time which would make the pain better. Surgery not option. I use aspirin 325 mg, and Ibuprofen 600mg. I'm due to go to the pain clinic 12-1-2008 for eval. Is it a good idea to try walking when you are in such pain? I don't want to harm myself more.
Any input would be appreciated!
