Has there been a study on the causes of LDDD.
I am a first time posted been a lurker for a while now and yes i have been diagnost with LDDD i'm 52 years of age and have work hard all my life as a telephone lineman and repair person, now i'm in management but it's kind of like the name DDD it's a misnomer because i still do (try to) the very same jobs that i was hired to get done only now i carry more responcibility. I have seen a neoro surgeon and he said no fusion and don't let anyone else convince you that you need it yet, but in time you will need it.
is it true that as you age LDD gets better because the disc's are gone and no more inflamitroy fluid can seep to your nerves or is it again not proven either way.
i have read a lot of info but i see conflicting reports. any one that can fill in the gaps feel free and I remember no one here is a Dr. unless it is verified by the board.
I know that in time I will have more questions.
