I ended up having to have back surgery for mine. The steroids didn't do anything for me. Good luck, Mama.

Once you lose weight, your back will hurt less.


So much strain messes up your back. Try stretching for about an hr a day, do some yoga, etc., and you will really feel the difference.

I actually BEGGED for surgery. They wanted to try 2 more injections but I knew they wouldn't help. I couldn't play with my daughter and I was so weak from not being able to eat due to the amount of pain I was in. I was 84 pounds the day of my surgery. I was in less pain walking out of the surgery than I was walking in.
