I dont know about possible future surgical procedures. It does sound like the possibility of pain management at some point. If that is the case I hope that you can control as much of the pain with your mind, hot and cold packs, electric stimulus or yoga etc as long as they are advised by a doctor as opposed to pills. Stay positive and I wish you well.
The treatment very much depends on the precise cause of the low back pain. Moreover, each patient must be individually evaluated and managed in the context of the underlying background health status and activity level. Read more information on this forum http://edrugforum.com/ .
