Hello,I'm Kay I am 24 and I have been diagnosed with DDD and spinal stenosis. I am in SEVERE pain my life is in ruins! Long story short it all started 8 months ago with mild hip pain,a burning sensation. Started a process of elimination, expensive shoes, changing jobs, PT, creams heating pads, Advil and non narcotic pain reducers, swimming, walking, laying in bed ... Ect the whole gammot! Now I can't drive more then 10min I cry at least 5-10 times a day In unholy pain Im urinating myself due to the pain from my back and the sciatica now in both legs going down to pinky toes. I have started taking stronger pain Meds
And now I have maybe 2hrs at best where I can move and that's still with
My walker. I don't know what to do I'm going in feb to have a discectomy of 3 disc I have 6 out and a couple fractures. I'm only 24 and have no qaulity of life. I only hve a 30% chance of being better even with the surgery ... I just don't know what to do I'm told I pretty much won't get better and I'm getting worse at a very rapid rate.
