Lumbar disc prolapse with myelopathy.

Hi all newbie here

Been suffering for years with lower back pain. My latest MRI shows Lumbar disc prolapse with myelopathy. I’m just looking for info on this condition and how bad can it get please ? 

I’m a single mum to two disabled children. One with muscular Dystrophy and the other has autism. My mobility is getting worse and I’m now house bound. I don’t know what to do or where to turn. Any information or advice would be most appreciated xx

    hi saz343

    Welcome to Veritas Health Forum

    so sorry to hear about your mri results.  there are no medical professional on this site for advice and members can only give their own experiences and should be taken in that way.  however there is a wealth of information on this site, for you to read and many posts from members for reading and input.  make use of the whole site and it really will help.

    i would advise going back to your specialist or family doctor for referral, if you have not seen a specialist.  only they can tell you how bad it is and give advice on treatment, whether that be physio or surgery.

    please keep us update after your appointment and we will support as much as we can from the sidelines.

    i have added two links below to help new members with information and these also contain the forum rules.  there is lots of material to research that will give you the power of knowledge.
