Thank you for posting your query.

I can understand your discomfort on account of pain and multiple surgeries.

In your case, following can be helpful in improving your quality of life:

1. Medications for pain relief such as pregabalin, gabapentin or duloxetine.

2. Physiotherapy- such as IFT, ultrasound, heat application, etc

3. Passive and active exercises for the back,

4. Epidural injections

5. Surgery should be the last option, as you have already undergone seven surgeries!

6. Avoid lifting heavy weights and forward bending.

Best wishes,
