multiple back problems

Started by Joy46149 on 03/06/2017 4:04pm

Hello: I'm a 74yr old female who have had back problems forever. Now it has gotten worse the past 2 months to the point I can only walk a very short distance even at home., and to make a long story short, I have Disc disease, lowback pain, spinal stenosis, spondylolsthesis and congenital, and scoliosis which was discovered 5 years ago. I don't have my medical info in front of me right now. I recently looked at the video xrays of my back and my back looks like garbage.I'm walking bent over and any further, I'll probably fall. I do stumble at times and have problems lifting my left leg.

Now it's time to find a spine doctor which I'm in the process searching for. My hospital of choice doesn't perform the
procedures I will need.
Thanks for reading my post
Have a nice day
