    Vertebrae attached to sacrum

    I am 26 years old I have had back problems since I was in school but only in the past 10 years has it been getting a lot worse. I have been to the doctor had x ray which showed I have flat back syndrome and also had an MRI that shows my right vertebrae is attached to my sacrum and they recon i was most likely born with it. So I am currently on oxycodone day and night for the past few years while I am on a waiting list to see pain management and a spine specialist. From what I have been told there are onlya few options getting epidural every so many months. Burning/freezing the nerves or fusing the spine. That's just from what my GP told me not the specialists. I am wondering if any perfessionals could weigh in on what they would reccomend ? Any sort of bending over or sitting/standing too long pushes the vertebrae against my spine and is pressing on nerves so basically any activity can have me in pain for days. Thankfully the oxycodone is really working wonders for the majority. I assume that if the fuse the spine they will in attach the bond from my sacrum also ? And is there a way of correcting flat back also ? Thanks
