Ouch! What's your...: question? The pathology that picked up sure could cause massive pain. How old are you? Your best bet is to go on the attack, in a multi-pronged aggressive manner. Take advantage of interdisciplinary center. You are the team leader, so coordinate with neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists who specialize in chronic pain management, yoga, Pilates, acupuncture, nutrition & CBT. Get Dexa scan. Stay strong!
