I have Spondylolisthesis, grade 1 or 2. Lately I have had to walk with a cane around the house, and I notice an increasing difficulty in just walking (any distance at all). Also my flexibility in moving my legs is not there. Is this all due to the main Lumbar condition?

doctor1 MD

Yes Please do. I have cervical and lumbar radiculopathy severe enough to be diabled and advancing.I also have COPD. After testing only 36% use of my lungs at this time. Was on Embeda ER 50,but started feeling it wasn t working then started swelling. I know it s time to change to something else. The pain management I with wanted to switch me to Nucynta. I said no because it has major life threatening breathing issues. Any other ideas?

ok today I found out the results of my mri of my lumbar region. my neuro diagnosed lumbar radiculopathy before the mri. but the mri is negative for disc herniation. the mri did show a fairly large uterine fibroid. Could this be the cause of my sciatic pain? but I had fibroid embolization in 2010. why does my uterus keep growing fibroids anyhow? it looks like I have to have a hysterectomy to fully resolve the sciatic pain. I don t want to lose my uterus. I am heartbroken.
