Hello my name is XXXXXXX I'm a 22 year old apprentice fitter and XXXXXXX I have been diagnosed with bilateral spondylolysis and postercenteral disc herniation also at L5\S1. The date of injury was 11\10\13 i have been off work completely until present, I have had severe pain around buttocks and legs, I have trouble sitting, standing or traveling for even short distances. For treatment I have had physiotherapy and nurophen plus pain killers. I have recently seen a specialist on the 21/01/13 and he has said I should be okay for light duties and be back on to full duties within 4 to 6 weeks. This sounds crazy for the amount of pain my back is still in, I would appreciate your opinion, What do you think my prognosis for life with spondylolysis working in a manual intensive job as a fitter and turner? will doing this job eventually lead to spondylolisthesis or spinal stenosis? What is a average timeline to recover from spondylolysis? Awaiting your reply
Regards XXXXXXX

My reply is below.
