I have three herniated discs in lumbar region and two bulging discs in the cervical area. All are very painful. Could this be apart of a condition?
General anesthesia: If you are having surgery such as lumbar laminectomy, discectomy, and/or fusion, you will recieve general anesthesia. However, a herniated disc does not always require surgery and is dependent on your symptoms and treatments.

It's possible: First we don't know if you actually have a herniated disc? So the only way to be sure would be an MRI or CT of your lumbar spine. Second if you have one you may be able to continue to bodybuild base on the severity and frequency of your symptoms. There are professional athletes who have had disc problems including surgery and returned to their sport activity. ...Read more

I have been on percocet 10/325 4-6 per day. Would suboxene be better for my liver? Been on this for 10 years for herniated discs in lumbar cervical.
Percocet/Suboxone: Although tyelenol (in percocet) can be detrimental to the liver. I would go by clinical picture ie abdominal pain, jaundice. Generally it would be good to check liver function test every 6 months while on Percocet like this. Suboxone has not tyelenol so it can be safer for the liver, but all opioid create tolerance over time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Because of a lumbar herniated disc I have to wear a rigid back brace as part of the overall conservative treatment. What is the average length for it?
Try low impact: Reducing calories can produce weight loss, but exercise makes it a bit easier. Exercise that does not "jar" or load the back will usually be more comfortable and may also help you feel better. Often water exercise can help a person burn calories with low back stress (swimming, water walking, water aerobics). Other options include elliptical machines, bicycling, perhaps walking. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Second Opinion: I suspect that you meant 5 millimeters, not centimeters. The need for surgery is dependent on many things. Are you having neurologic problems such as weakness, numbness or pain. Is the condition something that you can resolve with nsaids, rest, massage, and so forth. If in any doubt discuss this with a different surgeon than the one who is suggesting surgery. Hope this helps and good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
