I went to see the PT yesterday and it went well. He specializes in pain management for back problems and he helped me understand that it has been two years since my accident and my Spondylolysis & Spondylolisthesis remains a grade 1 with no signs of nerve damage which is a good sign for now.
Hey Yvette777 you were right about when your doctor told you were too young for surgery. The neo Surgeon who gave me a second opion and now my new PT said the same thing “you’re too young” “hold off as long as reasonably possible try other options before having surgery”. The PT schedule me for a bone scan which I will be getting tomorrow and I am going to get my first of three epidural steroid injections (ESI) which I will be under a local anesthetic next week, I hope it provides some relief. I read up on the side effects but has anyone out there experience any bad side effects from ESI? Is it anything like getting an epidural for child birth? He also recommended I try short walks, water aerobics, and crunches to drop some weight. So I am going to think positive from here on out. I am glad I cancelled my surgery because this PT has given me some hope
. Thanks everybody, I pray for all of you every night. If you have any advice I am all ears.
