I have been told that the disk in my lower back are worn down. What does that mean? I have had microdisectomy on L4 and L5 already. Thanks.

In brief: DJD L/S Spine

I guess that by "worn out" they mean there's small area or space between your vertebral bodies which means there is a degenerative or arthritic disease producing lack of flexibility and even possibly pain.
