Question: I have had 5 back operations due to falls and my pain Dr. told me that I should have a small operation where I can have shots of some new medication that is on the ocean floor. That didn't help so I stopped it and was sewn up again, but I have had an excruciating pain in my lower right abdomen that causes me to only sl recliner. I try sleeping in bed and I can sometimes sleep 2 to 2 1/2 hours on my left sls

Brief Answer:
Can be a nerve related pain.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain that you have can be related to a nerve root irritation or a mild nerve compression. Medicines like Pregabalin and methylcobalamin supplements can help in improvement of the symptoms. Do consult a neurologist and get proper medicines prescribed.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

1. Mild loss of normal cervical lordosis with multilevel disc displacements c
C3-4 through C7-t1 most pronounced for a leftward radiculopathy at C7-T1, a left paracentral and proximal foraminal protrusion/extrusion abuts and flattens the left paracentral cord resulting in borderline mild central canal stenosis with narrowing of the proximal foraminal entrance and abutment of the existing left C8 nerve root.
2. Additionally at C6-7 where a broad based central/left paracentral protrusion abuts and flattens the ventral cord resulting in borderline mild central canal stenosis. Moderate to severe left foraminal narrowing secondary to uncinate hypertrophy with abutment of the exiting left C7 nerve root.
3. Shallow broad based disc displacement C3-4 without cord compression or central canal stenosis. Mild left foraminal narrowing with abutment of the exiting left C4 nerve root.
4. Central protrusion C4-5 abuts and mildly flattens the ventral cord.
5. Shallow broad based disc displacement C5-6 eccentric to the right with borderline mild central canal stenosis without cord compression.

Sir, my quarry is, whether my case is operative or not ? sir, here i am quoting my MRI report of SI joints- 1.both SI joints show normal space, with out any evidence of fluid within the joint. 2.there is no evidence of erosion of the subcondral plate. the subcondral marrow is normal & there is no evidence of edema fatty infiltration or sclerosis. 3.the adjacent soft tissues are normal. NOTE IS Made OF: a) large central protrusion (With annular tear) at L4/5 level compressing thecal sac . b) large central extrusion at L5/S1 level compressing bilateral S1 descending nerve roots. IMPRESSION: normal study of SI joints.
