Hardware is screws and rods to separate the lower lumbar vertebrae and put in a new disc......question....is that the only solution? I’ve done therapy,injections and the ablation won’t work..seems extreme to me..
You’ll be glad you had it, I am. Once the pressure is off of the nerves. Good luck..
That's good news
Tom...Thanks for feedback,,,Interesting thing happened,,,,my family doc started me on thyroid medicine,,said mine was to low,,,all the symptoms of low I had,,,,was not aware of that...she adjusted dose twice ..research said could take a month or so to kick in....In a month or so ,all symptoms reduced..lots energy etc. and.....my back doesn’t hurt as much,,can function about normally..I think it really helped..hope it lasts...still lead a vigorous life...glad I held up on surgery for now..
There may be something other than surgery,but there may not be.I spent years of surgery with hardware,I had 5 on spine alone but I have other issues that's just as painful at times.Please get a Rheumatologist and a neurologist that you trust could take seeing 2 or 3 different ones.There needs to be xrays,MRI'S,ETC.Your on my prayer list.God Bless you
