Welcome to the Back Board
and the wait is over ~ YOU ARE a part of this forum
I have 2 things to say.
SEE ANOTHER Dr >> A SPINE SPECIALIST
SEE ANOTHER Dr ASAP.
You are in TOO much pain and discomfort. I do not know exactly why your current Dr says surgery is not available to you, perhaps he's not able to surgically help you, (sounds more like the case to me) Run, don't walk to see ANOTHER Dr.
*QuietCook is right: GET ALL of your records and films/studies etc... and have then with you at your initial appt with your NEW Dr!
are you currently in PM? If not, you should be! Especially since you've been told surgery is not an option for you. NOBODY should live the life you've described.
You don't have too!
I am so glad you've found this board. You'll find so very many people with the same fears, concerns and frustrations as you have.
Do hope to see you post regularly and we all wish you welll ~
