Re: Lower back, scar tissue or Sacrum?

Met with Dr. I have Level 5 Annular tears in L3, L4 AND L5! He said 3 disc fusion! We asked him about alternatives, and he suggested considering Autologous Stem Cell transplant. So, he is getting more info for us, and we are researching.

I posted a new thread asking for some comments. We'll see what happens. I'm just taking it one day at a time.
I did go get a lumbar brace today, that seems to help.

Sigh, can't believe this is my life. Then again, my sister was diagnosed with Leukemia.. (Doing well after BMT) So I'm trying to keep things in perspective.
