Hi, Sorry to hear about
your suffering and such a young age.
My DDD started at level one. I too went through PT that didn't help.
I have had maybe 3 or 4 epidural shots at the level one stage.
I was told be my neural surgeon just a month ago, he said that do to new research that recommends not going in higher then level two. I think you may be smart not taking surgery on, but to be honest If my surgeon was willing to operate at Level 5, I would do it in a heart beat. I have never been through major surgery before.
Why did you stop your lyrica? I as well take Trazodone 100mg at bed time(I call it my tylenol pm) Good luck and sorry to hear your a medicated and still bedridden. Can you enlighten me on the shaving surgery?
