MY age is 48. I'm leaking lower back spinal fluid. My right hip mild pain went a orthopedic. He x rayed my hip and back told me need rehab on my hip. That is all he told me. I seen on pentagon channel about spinal degeneration I called the doctor again told them I wanted to tested for spinal degeneration. The first doctor didn't want to see me, he was on vacation. I seen a different orthopedic but they were both there anyway. I don't trust those doctors. My mother was in surgery last year while I was waiting for surgery to end, some hospital employee told me I waited too long. You should of had done earlier. It's too late for you. If I have back surgery will it stop from spreading wearing any or all joints? How does it spread from wearing cartilage in my joints?
