Grade III spondylolisthesis – bilateral, unrelenting pain

Posted by katie215 @katie215, Mar 31, 2019

Woman, age 70, 11 mm grade 3 spondylolisthesis, L5S1, severe facet arthropathy L5S1, severe bilateral foramenal stenosis L5S1 and compression on bilateral exiting nerve root. Severe calf and thigh cramping, numbness toes and foot arches, no surgical option going forward. Feeling STUCK with unrelenting muscle pain, on OxyContin, baclofen (both low doses which I manage religiously). PCP doesn’t know how to help me. I’m feeling like I’m slipping emotionally.

@lifeofriley4, is surgery something you are scheduled for or considering?
